The Jack Attack's Top 10 Gus Johnson NCAA Tournament Calls

J.P. back with another Top 10 countdown. Now it's no secret that I am a huge fan of sportscaster Gus Johnson. And for the last 6-7 years, I have enjoyed hearing Johnson's voice during the NCAA Tourney, becoming synonymous with March Madness. Unfortunately, with Johnson's departure from CBS, there will be no "rise and fire" this year. With that being said, here are my 10 favorite GJ moments from the Big Dance:

10. #3 Gonzaga Bulldogs vs. #2 UCLA Bruins
2006 Sweet 16- Oakland Regional
Note: The last time Adam Morrison has been relevant to date...

9. #13 Vermont Catamounts vs. #4 Syracuse Orangemen
2005 1st Round- Austin Regional
Note: T.J. Sorrentine hits one from the "parking lot"!

8. #9 Xavier Musketeers vs #1 Ohio State Buckeyes
2007 2nd Round- South Regional
Note: What did Gus say?!

7. #10 Gonzaga Bulldogs vs. #6 Florida Gators
1999 Sweet 16- West Region
Note: "The Runner"

6. #13 Princeton Tigers vs. #4 UCLA Bruins
1996 1st Round- Southeast Regional
Note: Down go the defending champs...

5. #9 Villanova Wildcats vs. #8 George Mason Patriots
2011 2nd Round- East Regional
Note: 5 years later, Mason still making moves in the dance...

4. #10 Davidson Wildcats vs. #3 Wisconsin Badgers
2008 Sweet 16- Midwest Regional
Note: Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Stephen Curry...

3. #10 Davidson Wildcats vs. #1 Kansas Jayhawks
2008 Elite 8- Midwest Regional
Note: Almost...

2. #8 Butler Bulldogs vs. #2 Florida Gators
2011 Elite 8- Southeast Regional
Note: Explosion...

1. #6 Xavier Musketeers vs #2 Kansas State Wildcats
2010 Sweet 16- West Regional
Note: This game was epic, start to finish.

March Madness starts in full effect today! No Gus, but I guess I can survive with Kevin Harlan.
