Mario's Miracle (Chalmers)

A buzzer-beating shot to win the game is one of the most exciting moments in sports. In this case, however, the most important shot tied the 2008 national championship game and sent it to overtime. The game featured two number 1 seeds and a 2 point pre-game spread. With 2 seconds in regulation and his team down by three, the 6’2” Kansas guard rose above his defender at the top of the arc and drained a miracle shot to tie the game and force overtime. The shot changed the game's momentum and pushed them to a 75-68 overtime victory. It is regarded as one of the greatest finishes in NCAA tournament history. Playmaker: Matt J.
