You probably don’t know Al Sokaitis, the head basketball coach at Post University in Waterbury, Conn. But you should. Sokaitis has coached in Alaska, Colorado, Israel, Connecticut and, purportedly, the North Pole.

He has coached NBA players, polar bears, and camels, and won with all of them. Actually, he’s just a terrific coach at a small Division II college and could very likely become a Division I head coach someday. He has incredible basketball acumen, and is an outstanding motivator. But even more impressively, he agreed to do this video. Enjoy.

March Madness Classics: Kansas Wins 2008 NCAA Championship

Imagine a night when your dreams actually come true. It’s early April, and the crisp, young-spring air signals the end of a college basketball season and the beginning of a beautiful few months of sunlight and summer bliss.

You’ve been waiting for this night all your life; dreaming about what it would feel like if your favorite team ever won the national championship.  You flash back to five years earlier, when your heroes from Kansas nearly cut down the nets. You were heartbroken, crushed, destroyed by Gerry McNamara and his record-setting barrage of threes (six), and your team’s sudden inability to knock down free throws (Kansas went 12-30).

Your team opens up a first-half lead, then surrenders it for much of the second half, trailing by eight with just over a minute to go. You think it’s all over. Deja vu. Another heartbreaker.

Then, in a few glorious seconds, your boys come through. Collins makes the steal, then hits from three. Memphis’ Derrick Rose misses a few free throws. And Chalmers hits that miraculous three. You win it in overtime. Euphoria. So what do you do with that emotion? That incredible feeling?  You make this video below.

Okay, I did all that…. but it could be you and your team. Dream on.

March Madness Classics: George Mason’s run to 2006 Final Four

July 6, 2010 1 comment

It was a Cinderella story.  Only if Cinderella crashed the ball, kidnapped the D.J., smashed all the tables, and refused to leave before 3 a.m. Tiny George Mason, a commuter school from Fairfax, Va., shocked the college basketball world by flat-lining such basketball blue bloods as Michigan State, North Carolina, and Connecticut on its way to a stunning Final Four appearance.

Relive Mason’s miraculous run and the rest of the 2006 NCAA Tournament with this outstanding video. It just might be the greatest March Madness video ever posted on a little-seen website about northeastern college basketball.
