Who says there’s no crying in college basketball? Here’s my A-hed in today’s Journal about the boohooing bawlers of this NCAA tournament. Everyone’s crying! It’s the best.

You also might remember Thomas Hill crying on the sidelines afterward. Except you’re remembering wrong! Because Hill says now that he wasn’t actually crying. “Absolutely not! Not even close,” he said. He later added: “That was just an expression I’ve made my entire life when amazing things happen and especially if I’m apart of them.”
