9. March Madness is Born, Part 2
Game: Kansas St. vs. Oregon St.
Watch It Here
After U.S. Reed propelled Arkansas to a miracle win, it was Rolando Blackman's turn to give the nation a shock as he produced his own heroics for Kansas St. Against top seeded Oregon St., with the game tied and time winding down, Blackman buried a baseline jumper to send the Beavers home. It was a rough finish to a promising year; after starting out 25-0, Oregon State dropped their last PAC-10 tournament game to Arizona State, then after being given a First round bye in the NCAA Tournament they lost this game. They would soon have company, though, in their fellowship of miserable No. 1 seeds.
