22. Danny Ainge's Full Court Drive
Round: Sweet 16
Game: BYU vs. Notre Dame
Watch It Here
Danny Ainge was the best player on BYU's 1980-81 squad, so you'd think that with eight seconds remaining in their Sweet 16 matchup and nursing a one point lead, Notre Dame would make sure to cover the fleet-footed guard. Unfortunately for the Irish, they didn't. Ainge took the inbounds pass, raced up the court between several defenders, and converted at the rim as the Notre Dame players looked on, simply stunned. While they'd go on to get blown out in the next round by Ralph Sampson and Virginia, BYU had scored a signature victory for a school that wouldn't return to the Sweet 16 until 2011.
