WPSD Sports

In the spirit of March Madness, I thought we'd let you pick some of the best "goose bump" moments from the NCAA Tournament...bracket style. After about 15 minutes of extensive research, I've put together a list of 32 of the best moments and buzzer-beaters from the tournament. Whether it's a great shot, a great upset or a great call by an announcer, all of these made me say "Holy Cow!"...or something to that extent. We'll unveil one matchup per day until we have a winner. The matchups were selected at random.

Today's matchup pits UCLA's Tyus Edney and his coast-to-coast basket to beat Missouri in 1995 vs. UConn's Tate George beating the buzzer to to knock off Clemson in the 1990 Sweet 16.  Video links are below.
