39. 'It's Great, It's Tate'
Before Christian Laettner's heroics, there was Tate George in 1990, taking Connecticut to its first Elite Eight in equally improbable fashion. After Clemson scored to take the lead with 1.6 seconds left, the Huskies lined up with exactly one tick left, waiting for a miracle. It came via the baseball pass of Scott Burrell and the catch, spin and shoot from George, who drained the 15-footer as the buzzer sounded for the win. The next day, the Hartford Courant summed it up best -- "It's Late, It's Great, It's Tate."
