#8 Seed: No team over the past decade dominated the paint better than the 2003/2004 National Champion Connecticut Huskies.  Led by Ben Gordon and a banged-up Emeka Okafor, they were a dominant group which showed resilience when things truly mattered.  UConns dramatic comeback win against Duke in the Final Four was a game for the March-ages.  The Huskies put on a dominant performance two nights later to defeat Georgia Tech in the 2004 Championship match-up.  The 03/04 Connecticut mens basketball 03/04 title was coach Jim Calhoun's second NCAA mens championship campaign within a mere 5 year span.
