When we think about the NCAA tournament, we think about one of the most spectacularly unpredictable events in all of sports. We imagine buzzer beaters and upsets, showmanship and Cinderella stories. We anticipate “Madness” — and we love it. However, before a worthy team climbs the ladder and cuts down the nets, others must fall. And sometimes, we’re not just talking about on the scoreboard.
It doesn’t matter what sport you play, injuries are always a possibility. Unfortunately, not even an invitation to the big dance is enough to prevent them. With this year’s tournament in sight, we can only hope that players are able to remain healthy. We’d hate to see anyone suffer the same fate as these three individuals.
