Reliving Past Tournaments: Voters Pick Top Wins

New, 1 comment

I went through and picked the top wins of each day within each round, now it’s time for you to pick the top win of each round overall.

Given Tom Izzo as the Michigan State Spartans head coach has 22 straight years in the NCAA tournament and 52 wins in that time frame, there are a lot of games to look back at over his career. So I decided we could all use a fun debate over what his best win each day of the tournament was through each round. For the previous game recaps in this series, you can find the full list here. Now that we have the full list completed, it’s up to you as readers to vote for which game you think was the best of each round. Then at the bottom, be sure to follow the link to vote for what game you think should have won out of every round’s options regardless of my own selection for this series. I will publish the results next week for you all to see.
