Final Four Glory! Has It Really Been Five Years?


Mason b-ball fans show their spirit in 2006!

Now that Coach L has Mason’s men’s hoops team [2] back in the NCAA tournament, what better time than now to relive the nationwide madness the team created five years ago by making it to the Final Four. And as if your memory needs any refreshing of that magical March, but here are a few articles and videos from 2006 to get your b-ball juices flowing for what will hopefully be another month to remember this year!

The Mason Spirit has much of the mayhem covered here [3]. Lots of great photos and stats!

Here are two goosebump-inducing videos that capture the excitement and jubilation as the team beats heavily favored UConn, securing a spot in Indy!

Finally, here’s an article [4] on how much Mason has changed for the better since 2006. Have we really added nearly 40 buildings since then? Wow!

This year, the team is an 8th seed in the East Region, and kicks off play against 9th-seeded Villanova Friday in Cleveland at 2 p.m. A bus will take some students, faculty, and staff to Cleveland for the game. Those not going can watch at the Johnson Center. Click here [5] for more details. The game will be televised on TNT [6].
