Dereck Whittenburg
Whittenburg was the high scorer of the '83 tournament, netting 120 points in six games.

Welcome to SportsNation! On Monday, we're talking NCAA Tournament when member of the 1983 champion North Carolina State Wolfpack Dereck Whittenburg stops by to chat some hoops.

Whittenburg, @DWhittNCstate, is famous for his long shot (pass?) that Lorenzo Charles grabbed out of the air and dunked for the game-winning basket in the championship game. The Jim Valvano-coached NC State defeated favorite Houston 54-52 for the school's second national title.

The '83 Wolf Pack is featured in the latest ESPN 30 for 30 film "Survive and Advance." Whittenburg will be at this year's Final Four in Atlanta hanging out with fans as a part of Allstate's Team Mayhem. Fans can win $50,000 and tickets to the Final Four through ESPN's Tournament Challenge.

Send your questions now and join Whittenburg Monday at 1:30 p.m. ET!
