A Message from Charlie Zegers

My cousin was a student at St. John's University during the glory days of Louie Carnesecca, Chris Mullin, Mark Jackson and Walter Berry. Those Johnnies -- and their hated rivals, Patrick Ewing and John Thompson and the Georgetown Hoyas -- were my introduction to college hoops. When Ewing landed with my home town Knicks, my biggest enemy became my greatest friend. I love the game, I love the atmosphere. I love the pick and roll, the no-layup rule and Oakley's Car Wash. I love the passion of the fans, and the fact that the Internet allows fans to connect with each other. And I love the tournament, which is easily the best, most compelling championship in the entire world of sports. I'm no Walter Berry, but I hope this site will serve as your introduction.
