Default Still the greatest ending to an NCAA Basketball Championship

I remember watching this with my brother. It seems like yesterday.

Will never be beat. I was on Johnstonís C7 when that shot went down. The place erupted. What a great run by Jimmy Vís boys. Late night heroics from the west coast to downing Phi Slamma Jamma. Epic.

That was a true Cinderella. That team shouldn't have made the tourney but won it all.

Truth, but it is still so good. Geez Will before the tourney was expanded and only conference Champs were taken, the ACC tourney was like Mad Max Thunderdome and it WAS THE BEST!!!

I remember watching that game in the TV room above the loggia in Johnstone and it was packed. I was the only one in the room pulling for Houston...needless to say I have an idea of how Custer felt at Little Big Horn. I caught hell!!

I was in Yosemite National Park watching that game. That's a good one especially seeing the short clip with Rollie Massamino. Not sure how to spell his last name, but that was awesome too.

You remember the 1985 Villanova run. That was a great tournament, too.

Heck yea. With big Ole Ed Pickney. Massamino's hair by the end of their games always cracked me up. Like a cartoon character
