“In the Spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.” When Alfred, Lord Tennyson penned this first line of a couplet in the poem Locksley Hall, he was finishing a stanza on the finer parts of spring. Lord Tennyson can be forgiven for including love, because he had never seen a basketball game. So gifted a writer could surely have spun many a line had he witnessed the majesty that is March Madness in full swing.
This March started with Xavier still in contention for the NCAA tournament. Much like last March, the Musketeers controlled their own fate in terms of basketball.
