A lot of everything
“…a lot of everything … Players making plays, the ball to bounce your way, a player or two to play above their stat line, some luck and some great seeding. I tend to think teams that are playing great half court offense and can defend in the half court give themselves a great chance in March. Most games in the tournament seem to come down to halfcourt possessions no matter what style one plays throughout the year. To be in a position to win a championship is an honor and to find a way to win one is a combination of many things that go your way.”
