dc.description.abstract With their first trip to the Final Four in school history, Mason enjoyed in 2005-2006 what was undoubtedly its finest season. The Patriots won an NCAA Tournament game for the first time, set a school record with 27 wins, and defeated a pair of top-10 teams (Connecticut and North Carolina) for the first time in the history of the University. The Patriots' Cinderella story made George Mason the focus of national attention, spreading Mason Fever across the country. This site was designed to help fans become a part of the story of Mason's history. By posting online their memories and media files of this momentous run to the Final Four, fans around the world became a part of a living history. In its first month live, George Mason Basketball Digital Memory Bank registered a record number of visits. More than 219,629 site hits and more than 5,500 different visitors visited hoops.gmu.edu. 191 pictures and videos, and 202 stories were sent in by fans and friends before the site was closed to contributions. This memory bank was hosted at hoops.gmu.edu. en_US
