I remember it well when Laettner's turn around jump shot near the key won this one. It's still a high light reel for Duke. Coming home from VT late that night. Oh. The good ol days getting home at 11:30 - 12:00 am. I guess that Laettner was kinda off balance with a body under him to hit this one. Good one Mo Duke.

I didn't know that. Things that make you go, "hmmmm". Duke and their fans have a right to be bitter about that game, that's fo rsure.

Probably the biggest whitewash in NCAA history. But here is a little tidbit that I'll bet not too many remember. Two of the three officials were ACC refs. Wonder what part ol' Swoffie played in that one. Hmmmm :)

I remember that game as well. At first, I was glad Duke lost, for obvious reasons, but then I did feel really bad when K's players were so upset and hugged him, as if they let him down. That was a crushing loss. My husband asked me why I wanted Duke to lose when they have good players who work hard and stay out of trouble. He was right; I was ashamed that I wanted them to lose. I changed my attitude after that game. I pull for all ACC teams now in the NCAA's.

Ha ha ha - how DARE his chest get in the way of Laetner's foot!!!:)

Don't leave out TV Teddy Valentine. I suspect he is not so biased toward a given team, as long as he gets his share of the limelight. That moment for TV Teddy usually comes at the expense of one or sometimes both teams depending on TV Teddy's mood.

Yep. Hess and a few others out there do this to get a few back. Bias is real in every facet of our lives. I'm guilty as charged.

I remember that. UConn had no business winning that game. The refs let them get away with bloody murder all game long. It still irks me. They deprived (one of!) the all-time best Duke teams of the championship they deserved that year. Duke was a quasi-pro team in 1999. It was pretty disgusting, unless you are of the lighter blue persuasion.
