Classic March Moments

Lightning Strikes

March 28, 1992:
Duke 104 – Kentucky 103

When Kentucky’s Sean Woods sank a running 13-footer with 2.2 seconds remaining in overtime of the 1992 East Regional Final, giving the Wildcats a 103-102 edge over defending national champion Duke, it seemed a fitting end to one of the most epic college basketball games ever played.

But Blue Devils’ senior forward Christian Laettner – a demonstrated master of late-game one-upmanship – wasn’t ready to call it a career just yet. Forced to inbound the ball from beneath his own basket following a timeout, Grant Hill – curiously left unguarded by Kentucky’s defense – hurled a baseball pass 80 feet downcourt to Laettner, who turned, faked, and sank the game-winning field goal as time expired.

As it turned out, the Blue Devils would need every ounce of their All-American’s perfection in the narrow victory – his line for the day was impossibly sterling: 10-for-10 from the field, 10-for-10 from the line, 31 points. Duke would go on to become the first program in 18 seasons to win back-to-back national championships, but Laettner’s final reel heroics before the jam-packed Philadelphia Spectrum crowd remains that celebrated team’s most resonant – and emotional – moment.

March, 1990:
Loyola Marymount’s Stirring Run

In 1990, there was no bigger story in college basketball than Loyola Marymount, the media darlings that captured national attention with their explosive run-and-gun style. Under coach Paul Westhead, the Lions – led by Philadelphia high school teammates Hank Gathers and Bo Kimble – established an NCAA team scoring record that still stands today, averaging an absurd 122.4 points per game.

But on the eve of the NCAA Tournament, tragedy struck. Just days before the first round, during a West Coast Conference tournament game against Portland, Gathers – the All-American center whose Herculean brawn was matched only by his enormous heart – collapsed and died on the court after throwing down a thunderous slam dunk.

In the wake of inconceivable loss, the Lions responded with an inspired run deep into the NCAA Tournament. In each of Loyola’s four NCAA games, Kimble – a right-handed shooter – took his first free throw left-handed, as Gathers would have done. Against all odds, Loyola crashed the Sweet 16 with an eye-opening 149-115 victory over defending national champion Michigan. The Lions would plunge all the way into the Elite Eight before bowing to eventual champ UNLV.

But everybody remembers Kimble’s touching tribute.
“It may sound corny,” said Kimble, famously, “but it makes me believe I’ve got a little bit of Hank inside me. I feel his strength.” Watch Here >

March 27, 2004:
Oklahoma State 64 – Saint Joseph’s 62

Saint Joseph’s, the tiny Philly school with huge dreams, made stacks of headlines – and a Sports Illustrated cover – throughout the 2004-05 season. Among the highlights: an undefeated regular season, National Player and Coach of the Year honors, and the first No. 1 seed in the program’s 94-year history.

But while many hoped for a Hollywood ending to the story of the year, second-seeded Oklahoma State had a rewrite in mind. The Cowboys trailed St. Joe’s, 62-61, at the tail end of an exhausting Regional Final. That’s when John Lucas III, an excellent point guard in his own right, calmly netted a three-pointer over Pat Carroll’s outstretched arm.

When Jameer Nelson’s potential game-winner fell short, Cowboy Country – and the junior guard’s famous namesake, who was in attendance – exulted in the victory that sent Hall of Fame coach Eddie Sutton to his first-ever Final Four. Watch Here >
