    25 classic March Madness games you can watch right now.
    https://www.yardbarker.com/college_b...624115#slide_1

    Here's a few:
    North Carolina vs. Kansas, 1957
    What a game. The undefeated Tar Heels led by Frank McGuire felt like underdogs against Wilt Chamberlain and the Kansas Jayhawks in the championship game in Kansas City. North Carolina did everything they could to minimize Wilt's impact (even outrebounding Kansas) to build a double-digit lead. Kansas stormed back to force overtime ... well, the first overtime. In the third OT, Carolina's Joe Quigg hit two free throws to give the Heels a one-point lead. Quigg would then tip Kansas' pass to Chamberlain away to give UNC their first national championship. Fun fact: The Tar Heels beat Michigan State in three overtimes the day before in the national semifinal game.

    NC State vs. UCLA, 1974
    UCLA had won the previous seven NCAA tournaments but NC State went undefeated in the prior year but were unable to play in the tournament due to recruiting violations surrounding star David Thompson. Thompson was one of the best college players ever and (along with Tom Burleson) went toe-to-toe with Bill Walton and the mighty Bruins. UCLA held a lead late in regulation and in overtime but coughed it up both times to lose to the Wolfpack. Bill Walton still refers to this game as the most disappointing loss of his career. NC State would go on to beat Marquette for the national championship.

    Michigan State vs. Indiana State, 1979
    The game itself wasn't thrilling (the Spartans would win the game handily, 75-64) but it marked a shift in both college and professional basketball. Quite simply, it has been one of the most impactful games in hoops history. Magic Johnson and the Spartans had more firepower than Larry Bird's Sycamores but it was the beginning of both a rivalry that helped save the NBA but also turned the Final Four into a bigger event. The first possession saw Magic crash into Bird and they helped each other up which may be the most fitting play of this game.

    North Carolina vs. Georgetown, 1982
    Michael Jordan. Patrick Ewing. James Worthy. John Thompson. Dean Smith. All are Hall of Famers who met up in New Orleans to each win their first NCAA championship. Ewing spent the game swatting everything in sight (including a bevy of goal-tends) while Worthy's offensive prowess was on full display. Yet it was a jumper from freshman Michael Jordan that not only brought Dean Smith his first national championship but began the legend of arguably the greatest basketball player ever.

    NC State vs. Houston, 1983
    NC State needed to win the ACC tournament just to get into the big dance while Houston boasted All-Americans Akeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler. Drexler, however, picked up four fouls in the first half which allowed the Wolfpack surge to an 8 point halftime lead. Houston would go on a 17-2 run to take their own lead before one of the most memorable moments in tournament history happened. Lorenzo Charles catching Dereck Whittenburg's miss and dunking it before time expired to give NC State the win and Jim Valvano running onto the court to celebrate.

    When we hired Byington or when he left us? I'd like to see his track record with G5's especially with Big Frank refuting the candidate list.
    No longer eating crow for saying "The TO is gone get over it!!"

    Big Frank - who are the names on your list? Andrew Wilson gets a interview, but who are the others?

We just have to find the right fit for us and we'll be fine.
    Agree.
    Not many coaches are gonna significantly out-recruit other G5 programs. We need a guy that can COACH. Thatís easier said than done, but heís out there and is affordable.
