Thank you, Louisville Cardinals, for perfectly personifying the meaning of a true team on your trip to the title (Three for All). Luke Winn described an inspired, unrelenting ensemble that overcame huge challenges on and off the court to reach their goal. The story helped remind us that passion, selflessness and commitment can lead to great things.

The juxtaposition of the articles on the special bond between the players at Louisville and Chris Mannix's story on Kentucky's reloading with one-and-done hopefuls (Stand-up Double) brought into focus the very different approaches taken by these archrivals. Being a graduate of one (Kentucky) but a fan of the other (Louisville), I'll only say it was a special treat watching the Cardinals' journey to the title this year.

After reading Richard Deitsch's interview with Verne Lundquist (One-on-One ...) I added to my bucket list: have an "unsweetened ice tea" with Verne and Bill Raftery. Onions!
