The NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Tournament – otherwise known as March Madness – takes place for the 78th time this year, beginning with Sunday Selection on March 12th.

Is there a more famous play in the history of the NCAA Tournament? Duke is down one with 2.1 seconds left in overtime against Kentucky and in need of a miracle to go to the 1992 Final Four, but a court-length inbound pass from Grant Hill finds Christian Laettner with his back to the basket at the top of the key, who then hits the incredible, turn-around, game-winning jump shot for Duke.
