13. The Smart play

In 1975-76, if you had told Indiana fans that in just over a decade, Bob Knight's final national title would come thanks to two things he always hated -- the 3-point shot and junior college transfers -- they would have laughed you out of the room. But that's what made Keith Smart's 1987 national title game so special: In the final minutes of the game, as Syracuse stymied the lethal outside shooting of Steve Alford, Smart scored 12 of IU's last 15 and, with just four seconds to play, pulled up for a high 17-foot fading floater. Good thing Knight came around. -- Eamonn Brennan
