NEW YORK – “I honestly think it’s the most important sporting event in the country, a national treasure, because it unifies us for the month of March the way we’re not unified at any other time of the year. It brings teams and people together from small towns and big cities, rural areas and urban ones, the East coast, the South, the Midwest, everywhere.”
–Mike Krzyzewski, Duke head coach, in “How March Became Madness”
