Mr. March Madness No. 1: Morrison, six, fires, OOHH HE BANKED IN A THREE

March is a great month. Not only because it ushers in the start of spring, but because of March Madness, the greatest sporting event of the year.

There are many reasons why March Madness is great. The endless basketball, the great games, the upsets, and the the buzzer-beaters. But there is one thing that ties all of these great reasons together, and that one thing makes all of those reasons infinitely better.

Gus Johnson.

In honor of his contribution to March Madness, B.I.A.H will be counting down the 10 greatest calls from Gus Johnson. Now, not all of the clips are from March Madness, but all of them are instant-classics.

Here is No. 1: Morrison, six, fires, OOHH HE BANKED IN A THREE

Many of us have speculated on what would happen if Bill Raftery, the loveable drunkard version of Dick Vitale, were to get paired with Gus Johnson in a game with an exciting finish.

Well, we know the answer to that question.

And as you might expect, it involves quite a bit of incoherent babbling:

So concludes our countdown of Gus Johnson's best calls. I hope you enjoyed watching them as much as we did.
