The Shot

Fifteen years ago tonight, Christian Laettner hit The Shot to beat Kentucky in overtime and send Duke to the Final Four, and ultimately to the finals where they repeated as NCAA champions. Definitely one of the top plays in all of college basketball history, if not all of sports history. Still gets me teary-eyed when I watch it.

  1. Love Laettner or hate him, it was an incredible game and an incredible shot. (Hey, I have to find SOMETHING to smile about–it’s been a while since I’ve seen good Duke basketball!)
