March is Emeka Okafor's favorite month.
The former national champion at UConn and current New Orleans Hornet had his one shining moment last night against the Utah Jazz, sending the game into overtime with an improbable heave at the buzzer. Okafor isn't known as a 3-point shooter (read: shooter), so that alone makes the shot impressive. And the Hornets won the game. A banner night all around for the Huskies.
