Every year, the NCAA Tournament gives us Cinderella stories, unlikely matchups, and ultimately a basketball champion. Some players become one-hit wonders. For the rest of their life, they’ll be remembered by many for their March Madness magic.

Who doesn’t remember West Virginia’s Kevin Pittsnogle? Did you know that he’s currently working at a car dealership in his hometown of Martinsburg, West Virginia.

How about Ali Farokhmanesh (pictured), the Northern Iowa guard who never met a shot he didn’t like, and helped propel the Panthers to an unlikely upset over Kansas in the 2008 NCAA Tournament. He’s playing ball overseas in Switzerland and Austria.

The Postgame, a Yahoo! sports blog, has compiled an impressive list of NCAA Basketball Tournament one-hit wonders. It’s interesting to learn where the likes of Harold Arceneaux and Gabe Lewullis are, just to name a few. Click here to check it out.
