It’s that time. The Ides of March, when the tables turned on Caesar, and the battle for power…oh wait… I mean, that time of year when the battles of March, played on basketball courts around the country, determine who will be the 2016 National Champion!
East, West, South, Midwest–what better way to express the excitement of March Madness than our featured 2008 Syracuse Poster Project haiku poster created together by poet, Pat Flowers and former Syracuse University Illustration student, Gabe Eng-Goetz:
Fenced in glory hoops / leap in air toward heaven / endless chatter scores
Congratulations to the Syracuse University basketball team for their selection to play in the 2016 NCAA Tournament. In another day or so from this posting, they’re scheduled to play the Dayton Flyers.
