33. Indiana, 1987

On the heels of missing the 1985 NCAA tournament and then a first-round exit in 1986, Indiana fans weren't sure what to expect from the 1986-87 squad. It was college basketball's first season with the 3-pointer, which seemed tailor-made for sharp-shooting senior Steve Alford. IU coach Bob Knight added junior college transfers Dean Garrett and Keith Smart and put together a team that shared the Big Ten title. The Hoosiers breezed through the first three rounds of the NCAA tournament, but needed Rick Calloway's bank shot off an air ball to beat LSU 77-76 in the regional finals. At the Final Four in New Orleans, IU overcame UNLV guard Freddie Banks' 10 3-pointers to survive with a 97-93 victory. Then Smart made one of the most memorable shots in NCAA history, nailing a 16-footer from the corner with three seconds to go in a 74-73 win over Syracuse in the finals. -- Mark Schlabach
