Default What Does It Feel Like to Win a MBB NCAA Tournament Game?

Any old timers on the board who could provide insight into what it feels like to win a game and advance in the Big Dance? I've never experienced that feeling in my life, and I'd like to before I die. This is a serious question, not a swipe at our basketball program. March Madness is my favorite sporting event all year, but it's also extremely despressing. I'd love to hear about the excitement back in the early 70s.

Sadly, even the great McGuire teams in the 70s didn't make any noise at tournament time. Of course, our best team (1970) went 25-3 and 14-0 in the ACC didnt even make the NCAA tournament because only the conference tournament champion got a bid to the NCAA tourney.

The NCAA changed the rule the next year I beleive, but of course we won the ACC tournement in 1971 and got a first round bye. We lost to Pennsylvania the 2nd round (which was the Sweet 16 back then, because the NCAA only took 24 teams).

We won our first round games in 1972 and 1973, but lost in the 2nd round (Sweet 16) both years.

We'v only been to the NCAA tournament 5 times since then (74, 89, 97, 98, and 04) and we lost in the first round each year.

Funny - we have made the Sweet 16 three times, but we have only won two NCAA tournament games . . . ever.

This. We beat Kentucky twice that year as well as Cincy (who were ranked way up there) and many pundits thought we had a good chance to make the Final Four. Then... Coppin State happened.

I understand completely.

Grew up pulling for them and Winthrop. UNC has definitely dropped down the list since going to USC, but I still pull for Winthrop (as long as they aren't playing us). I could give perspective from the mid-major standpoint, but it's not a good comparison to the power conference standpoint.

Can't go that far. While I don't like UNC nearly as much as I used to, my hatred of Duke persists. Duke is on the same level as Clemson for me.

Unfortunately - Yes. But that was not as bad as our opening round loss to Pennsylvania right after beating UNC for the ACC Championship in 71.

It was technically the 2nd round of the tournament - which as I pointed out above was the Sweet 16 back then - but we had a first round bye that year, so it was still our first game of the tournament . . .

Yes it was (we lost in the 2nd round - Sweet 16 - to eventual national runner-up Memphis).

Our "opening round" losses have included Pennsylvania in 71, Furman in 74, NC State in 89, Coppin St in 97, Richmond in 98, and Memphis in 2004.

I remember listening to the Coppin State loss on the radio. Just terrible.

Basketball hasn't been much since then...except for my years in college whenever we won the NIT twice. Although it's a shit tourney, that last second shot by Kinsey sinking made the bar I was in erupt like we had won the national championship.

Speaking of Tarence Kinsey...

...does anyone remember that song by 50 Cent called "Candy Shop"? Where he talks about letting a female lick his lollipop? Tarence Kinsey dates the girl who provided vocals in that song.
