- Charm: There are the best youth stories here.

Some people may ask what the charm of the NCAA Tournament is and why it is so concerned.

The NCAA Tournament is highly sought after and is inextricably linked to the event structure. The NCAA's divisional alliances are mostly based on geographical divisions. The championships of the 32 divisional leagues can automatically advance to "Mad March", which means that the teams are all over the United States. In other words, everyone can find a team in their hometown or alma mater.

More importantly, there are basketball, the purest and most inspirational stories about youth, and this is the best showcase of the NCAA Tournament.

Like the University of Virginia, which won the first NCAA championship trophy this year, they wrote a touching story.

A year ago, the University of Virginia entered the NCAA Tournament as the No. 1 seed in the United States, but they suffered from Waterloo in the first round and were eliminated by the divisional No. 16 seed Baltimore. Although the event is known for its madness and magic, in history, "Black 16" is still the first time. Faced with the huge gap between hope and reality, you can imagine how dark the 18- and nine-year-old children have experienced.

A year later, they made a comeback. In the elite quarter-finals, facing Purdue University, Virginia still lags behind by 5.9 seconds. Jerome, who scored a free-throw opportunity, made two free throws. Diakate grabbed a gold-like offensive rebound and hit the whistle, dragging the game into overtime and helping the team escape.

In the final four games, he encountered Auburn University. Gay caused the opponent to make a three-pointer foul at the last moment before the game ended. At this moment, his team Virginia is still two points behind. Withstood the pressure, Gay made all the penalty and sent the team to the final.

In the face of Texas Tech, the last opponent on the road to victory, Virginia's number one star, Hunter, came forward. He first hit the three-pointer before the end of the regular time, and later decided the trend of overtime. Last year's "losers" created their own memories by holding up the trophy. Gay, who was crying in the bathroom a year ago because of his failure, became the MOP of this competition.

Such stories happen every year because Virginia is just one of hundreds of teams chasing dreams. Although there is only one champion, everyone is pouring all the sweat to become the protagonist of tomorrow's story. Perhaps their skills and tactics are not perfect enough to compare careers, but this is precisely the perfect interpretation of youth.

As the University of Virginia coach Bennett described the journey, "This is a great story."
