With the No. 1 team in the country, UCLA, trailing 74–73 against No. 8 seed Missouri, diminutive 5'10" point guard Tyus Edney went coast-to-coast with 4.8 seconds to play for the game-winning layup — going off the glass and through the net as the buzzer sounded in Boise, Idaho. Following Edney’s do-or-die drive, coach Jim Harrick and M.O.P. Ed O’Bannon’s Bruins went on to win UCLA’s 11th national championship — the first (and only) since John Wooden’s run of 10 national
titles ended in 1975.
