Were you watching one of the greatest college basketball games of all-time?

I remember it like it was yesterday.

The 1983 NCAA men’s basketball championship game, Houston against North Carolina State.

My dad, God rest his soul, and I watched the game together. Dad wanted Houston to win, primarily because the elder Guy Lewis was their coach. I was plugging for the prohibitive underdog that didn’t stand a chance.

Keep your eye on the final seconds.


Watch again.

Lorenzo Charles was the hero.
