(3) Ronald Moore's NCAA Tournament Heroics
Fresh off a big upset in 2008 over Vanderbilt, the Saints were much respected in 2009 and earned their highest seed in the NCAA Tournament in program history. The faced Evan Turner and the Ohio State Buckeyes in the first round as a 9 seed and played one of the most memorable games in local college basketball history.
