One pass, one shot, the unlikeliest of victories.
When college basketball fans are asked about the greatest game ever played, the answer is unanimous.
Duke vs. Kentucky, 1992, NCAA East Regional Finals. There is no close second.
That game, and the events leading up to it, is the topic of Gene Wojciechowski’s The Last Great Game: Duke vs. Kentucky and the 2.1 Seconds that Changed Basketball. Not only does the book time machine us back twenty years to when Christian Laettner ripped out Kentucky’s heart with a single, yet miraculous, turn-around jumper, it interviews every last player, coach, official and journalist involved with the game, to remind us just how special that afternoon was.
