On today's episode of the Barstool Bench Mob, we begin a new month of the college basketball offseason. Tipoff is just about three months away, and Duke is already making moves for next season with a few big commitments for next season. Also, UCLA and Villanova are set to tipoff this winter, and the brackets are now set for two marquee events this season: The Battle 4 Atlantis and The Maui Invitational.
We wrapped up today's show with a little bit of a debate: with Kemba Walker's move to the New York Knicks, is his "Cardiac Kemba" shot the most iconic moment in Championship Week history? I'd say yes. You remember where you were when the Connecticut Huskies won this game (I was standing in the middle of a staircase on my way to Spanish class in 9th grade, watching on my phone):
As for other legendary moments that occurred during the week before Selection Sunday, let's take a look at some of the other great ones:
Syracuse-Connecticut 6OT Game (2009)
Connecticut Stuns Cincinnati in 4OT Thriller (2016)
Isaiah Thomas' Game Winner For Washington Over Arizona (2011)
Evan Turner Send Michigan Home At The Buzzer (2010)
Are any of these moments better than Cardiac Kemba's shot inside Madison Square Garden? They are all iconic, but it's a close call. What is your pick for best Champ Week moment ever?
