Why we love March basketball

I caught the end of the Pac 10 championship game. Southern Cal came back to beat Arizona State, using four great plays in the final minute to take the win.
1. The guard drove the lane, then kicked to Dwight Lewis for a three.
2. Arizona State drove to the basket, but the USC player got in place to take the charge. USC down only one instead of three.
3. Taj Gibson's great blocked shot, just nudging the ball from behind, then coming down with the ball.
4. On Arizona State's final play, the USC guard raced for the loose ball and knocked it off an Arizona State player who was going out of bounds. USC ball and USC game.
May there be several endings like this in the next three weeks.
