Through the years Jimmy V maintained that he was confident his Wolfpack would beat the highly-favored Houston Cougars in the '83 national championship game, but it sure didn't look like he'd done much prep work for his celebration. Its rivals deride NCSU as an "agriculture school," so it's only fitting that Valvano's race around the court to find somebody to hug kinda looks like the human representation of a chicken with its head cut off. Bonus celebration points for Cozell McQueen and Ernie Myers climbing up on top of the backboard.

Big play!Big play!
