It was a moment so shocking Jim Valvano didn’t know what to do. Stunned by what had unfolded in front of his very eyes, the N.C. State coach ran around the court just looking for someone to hug. Now, almost 30 years after Dereck Whittenburg heaved that last-second prayer in the 1983 national championship game, Lorenzo Charles’ dunk at the buzzer remains college basketball’s most memorable moment.

Better yet, it came against Houston’s renowned Phi Slama Jama, a squad that boasted a 31–2 record and a 26-game winning streak that season and was expected to easily defeat its underdog opponent.
