3. Saving The Season

Losers of seven of their past nine games, the UConn Huskies were fading fast heading into their matchup with Villanova. After calling out his teammates on Saturday, Shabazz Napier kept Connecticut's postseason hopes alive with a ridiculous 30-footer for the win. That shot is hard enough to hit in a game of H-O-R-S-E let alone in a Big East road game. This could be the moment that turns the season around for the defending champs?

5. College Football's Elite Eight

There seems to be great support for a playoff system in college football, but the only problem is nobody can agree on how many teams should be eligible. The Big Lead's Ty Duffy outlines his plan for an eight-team playoff system. I like this plan because not only does it give Cinderellas like Boise State and TCU a chance to compete for the national title, but it also makes the regular season even more important than it already is.
