The 50 Most Badass Moments in March Madness History

2. Laettner vs. Kentucky

Round: Elite Eight
Game: Duke vs. Kentucky
Year: 1992
Watch It Here

This is perhaps the signature moment in March Madness history. It combines everything we love about the Tournament: the huge stage (a trip to the Final Four), the impossible play (full-court heave followed by turnaround jumper), and the wild celebration (Tyrone Hill crying, Duke players pig piling). A simply incredible play that, over time, has only faded because we have seen it played so many times that we've become numb to it. But make no mistake, the combination Grant Hill's insanely accurate pass and Laettner's blind shot attempt is one of the most incredible plays ever to occur in Tournament play.
