2011 Conference Tournament: Quarterfinals
Cardiac step back
UCONN vs Pittsburgh
76 - 74
10 March, 2011
This shot had it all: crossover, step-back, broken ankles, swish, buzzer-beater, tremendous play-call. Kemba's step back is truly iconic.
1999 National Championship
UCONN vs Duke
77 - 74
29 March, 1999
With 20 secs left UConn was only up a point and Duke had a chance to take the lead but they traveled and had to foul. Khalid El-Amin went to the line and hit a clutch pair of free-throw. Duke couldn't get a final shot off and UConn got its first championship.
2004 National Semifinals
UCONN vs Duke
79 - 78
3 April, 2004
With 26 secs remaining, Okafor grabbed his own rebound and put it away to give UConn the lead. A trio of free throws for UConn put the game out of reach that even a last second 3 pointer by Duke couldn't overcome. The win took UCONN to the championship game where they netted their 2nd Championship.
2014 National Championship
Huskies the whole time
UCONN vs Kentucky
60 - 54
7 April, 2014
No one expected 8 seed UConn to make it to the title game, but they made it and they shut down Kentucky to get their 4th Championship.The dagger late in the game was a pass from Shabazz Napier to DeAndre Daniels for a layup and a 6 point lead that Kentucky could not overcome.
My kids play little league baseball and they loved giving the coasters as end of season coach gifts. The coasters are well made and the packaging is nice too.
I recommend these as a gift for any baseball lover. I ordered a couple extra to have on hand.
These were a gift for my Steeler fan. He loved them!
Amazing gift for the sport fan! Great addition to the man cave.
Recipient of the gift really liked it! Very cool idea
