You can thank Jamie Skeen for being the first player to produce a buzzer-beating moment this March.

The VCU forward hit a spinning, off-glass bunny shot to beat Drexel earlier this afternoon to lift the Rams past fifth-seeded Drexel in the quarterfinals of the CAA tournament.

Here's the final seconds of the game, which only needed Skeen's dramatics because Drexel's leading scorer, Chris Fouch, hit a long 3 to tie the game at 60 with with 13.2 seconds left.

Enjoy this. Embrace March. It is here with full force. No matter the size of the arena, the channel of the broadcast or the jerseys on the floor, everyone gets a piece of the best month of the year.

(Timothy Burke is my hero.)
