Yes it's March, but technically the real March Madness is saved for the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, which begins March 13th. Going on right now are the conference tournaments, and the drama can be just as good as it is in the Big Dance.

Jamaal Franklin knocked down an off-balance, buzzer beating 3 with the game tied to lift San Diego State past Boise State in the first round of the Mountain West Conference tournament in Las Vegas. The shot - and the crowd's frenzied reaction - are enough to give anyone chills. Hopefully this is just one of many shining moments like it to come in the next few weeks.
