This time last year, Sheldon's Dallas Ennema led the Orabs to the Iowa Class 2A Championship.

In two days, the freshman will be with the University at Albany when the Great Danes take on Mount St. Mary's in the NCAA Tournament first round.

Ennema scored two points in Albany's 69-60 win over Stony Brook in the America East Tournament Championship game to earn an automatic berth.

You can see Dallas at the top of your screen -- he takes off his hat -- bouncing around in the sea of players and fans as they celebrate the victory.

As you can imagine it's been quite the ride for the Sheldon, native.

"It's indescribable," Ennema said.  "I came to college basketball because I wanted to go to the Big Dance and I knew Albany gave me the best chance for that and ultimately I got to there.  It's a great, great feeling.  Having the court rushed and everyone jumping around, it's something I've never been a part of.  It's an amazing feeling."

Their reward if they win, the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament, Florida.
