IT'S THE guiltiest of pleasures, a truly terrible song we can't help listening to this time of year. It's One Shining Moment, and CBS has been using it as the music for its NCAA tournament highlights wrap up since 1987. Most of the montages can be found on YouTube, but the best is arguably the first. Aired after Indiana beat Syracuse, the '87 edition features Keith Smart's title-winning, buzzer-beating jumper. Bonus points for shots of Bob Knight memorably attacking a phone, Jerry Tarkanian's Sipowicz-esque short-sleeved-shirt-and-tie combos and the awful perms on the crying cheerleaders.
