Watch It Here

It's rare in the modern game for a single player to carry an entire team, but that's exactly what the diminutive Stephen Curry did with Davidson in the 2008 Tournament. After leading his team to a First round upset over Gonzaga, Curry buried Georgetown with five three pointers and 30 overall, propelling his 10th-seeded team into the Sweet 16 where they would take down Wisconsin. Curry's heroics also spawned one of Jim Nance's cheesiest lines in recent memory, which—while admittedly not that hard to do—is still an accomplishment nevertheless.
