Whoever said good things comes in threes never tuned into March Madness, where the tournament’s most intense games typically take place during the Final Four semi-final round.

Who could forget North Carolina State’s stunning double-overtime victory over UCLA in 1974? The epic clash ended the Bruins’ seven-year run as NCAA champs and introduced the world to David Thompson, who brought streetball theatrics to the hardwood with his dazzling, above-the-rim play.

Or how about Duke’s nail-biting two-point win over UNLV in 1991? All-American pivot Christian Laettner sent the Runnin’ Rebels packing by coolly nailing a pair of clutch free throws with 12.7 seconds on the clock.

More recently, Virginia turned in a legendary Final Four performance of its when the Cavaliers downed the Auburn Tigers by one point in 2019. The game’s undisputed hero was Kyle Guy, who was fouled on a three-point attempt with 0.6 seconds remaining, and proceeded to hit all three of his free throws.
