If you are like most of the nation, surely your bracket has already been busted by all of the upsets, so you should head over to Enterprise Rent-A-Car’s Facebook App to continue participating in their NCAA Ultimate Pick-Up Moments Bracket Challenge.
Before March Madness officially got underway, we informed our readers that THD has been chosen as an official partner with Enterprise to promote their Bracket Challenge, where readers vote on some of the NCAA Tournament’s all time memorable “Pick-Up Moments” for a chance to win a trip and tickets to the 2015 Final Four in Indianapolis.
The Challenge began with 16 of March Madness’ most iconic moments and have now been paired down to the Final Four. Some of the top videos remaining include “The Shot”, featuring Duke’s Christian Laettner’s now famous buzzer beater to sink Kentucky, and “In Tribute”, as Loyola Marymount’s Bo Kimble shoots his free throws left handed in honor of fallen teammate Hank Gathers.
Two other examples that could go all of the way include “The Putback” as NC State upset the heavily favored Houston Cougars on Lorenzo Charles’ put-back dunk in ’83 and “Smart Shot” where Indiana guard Keith Smart hit one of the most memorable shots in NCAA history to win Bob Knight and the Hoosiers the 1987 National Title.
Some of the top “Pick-Up Moments” in the 2014 Tourney have to be Stephen F. Austin’s 4 point play to eventually beat VCU in OT, Kentucky finally coming of age to hand #1 seed Wichita State their lone loss on the season, the improbable romp of Dayton into the Elite Eight, and of course Tennessee’s Cinderella run from one of the last four teams in, to a berth into the Sweet 16.
Last week, I hope that all of you participated in our March Madness Twitter chat as our other partners @playgrounddad from Next Impulse Sports and @bullzeye.com from Bullzeye will once again be on Twitter this weekend at #EnterpriseNCAA, live tweeting some epic match-ups in the Sweet 16 and Elite Eight . Feel free to join in for a chance at more prizes.
