31. Ainge in the lane

Before he became an NBA front-office fixture, Danny Ainge was a multisport legend. "The greatest athlete I've ever seen," Al McGuire said of the Brigham Young star and Toronto Blue Jays prospect. With eight seconds left and his Cougars trailing Notre Dame by one point in the 1981 Sweet 16, Ainge took an inbounds pass under his own basket. At midcourt, he got past John Paxson with a behind-the-back dribble on his way to hitting the game-winning floater in the lane. "We wanted to control Ainge," Fighting Irish coach Digger Phelps said after the game. "And we did that, until the final eight seconds." -- John Gasaway
