“One Shining Moment” — the montage that has closed every March Madness since 1987 — is a beautiful thing. But too many of these “One Shining Moments” end with Duke or Kansas or Kentucky winning.

March is about the grinders, small-timers, folk heroes and teams of destiny getting their big moment in the sun.
