1976 National Championship
Indiana vs Michigan
86 - 68
29 March, 1976
Indiana was trailing by 6 pts at the half, but the undefeated team was up for the challenge. Quinn Buckner helped shift the momentum with this great steal to give Indiana a 4 point lead. Indiana went on to win by 18 points, getting their third National Championship title.
1987 National Championship
Indiana vs Syracuse
74 - 73
30 March, 1987
Trailing by 1 pt with 27 secs left, Indiana brought the ball upcourt. Steve Alford is covered so Keith Smart gets the ball and penetrates, passing to Daryl Thomas. Thomas can't get a clean shot and finds Smart again who hits a jumper with 5 secs remaining, securing Indiana its 5th championship.
2001 Regular Season
The buzzer ends the streak
Indiana vs Michigan State
59 - 58
7 January, 2001
No one gave unranked Indiana much of a chance when it faced #1 Michigan State. But Indiana stayed close, playing ferocious defense, but trailed by 2 with 7 seconds left. Indiana inbounded and found Kirk Haston on the 3 point line. Haston sank the 3 as time expired to win the game.
2011 Regular Season
For the win!
Indiana vs Kentucky
73 - 72
10 December, 2011
Indiana and Kentucky had battled back and forth for the lead but with time running out Kentucy was up by 2 points. Verdell Jones III took the ball with 5 seconds left and drove the court, kicking back to Christian Watford who put up the game-winning three-pointer as time expired.
One of the coasters has a strange stain across it while a second also carries a stain and the print is already wearing away. Other two look great. So, two out of four stars, I suppose.
Unfortunately the product has taken some time. A label was created 7 days prior to the post office receiving the product according to the USPS tracker. If I would have know it would have been shipped via USPS, I probably wouldn’t have ordered. Still have not received. Looking forward to seeing the product though!!
I ordered the coasters for my son’s Christmas stocking. They are good quality slate and the fact that they have each of the game winning plays from the Braves championship run make it even more special.
Been a die hard Kings fan for 38 years and this ad stumbled across my Instagram page and can be more happy to see these coasters!
