The past is gone, it went by like dust to dawn... isn't that the way? The 2006-07 basketball season is over for 2005-06 NCAA participants Kent State, Bucknell. It's over for California-Irvine, Cal State Fullerton, Morgan State, N.C. A&T, Lamar, McNeese State, Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Texas Southern and Boise State. To the players and coaches who made it this far in Championship Fortnight but go home without postseason reality, dream yourself a dream come true.
