14. Brown to Worthy

When Georgetown's Fred Brown passed to North Carolina's James Worthy to seal the 1982 national championship for UNC, it became one of the most memorable images in tournament history. It also overshadowed one of the most physical championship games ever played. When I think of that game, I think of the rosters. Michael Jordan, Worthy, Sam Perkins, Pat Ewing and Sleepy Floyd drawing a line in the sand on every possession. Jordan's baseline jumper to put the Heels ahead in the closing seconds -- he would do that a few more times in his career. I think of the genuine respect the coaches -- John Thompson and Dean Smith -- had for each other, exemplified by their embrace after the game. Finally, I think about Coach Thompson and the way he was there for his player after the loss. To me, that was coaching. -- Seth Greenberg
