March Madness Inspiration
In the United States, that means basketball.
March Madness was born on March 27, 1939. The record for the most successful team ever is still held by UCLA with eleven championships. How many of those were directly under the leadership of legendary basketball coach John Wooden? An astounding ten. Still amazing. Pat Summit’s record is also one for the history books with six championships for Tennessee (and 1,098 career wins!).
As someone who collects inspiring quotes, there is an unending supply of great ones from outstanding players and coaches.
Here are a few of my favorites:
