Dr. Dime’s Top 5 Final Four Buzzer Beaters

Final Four Buzzer Beaters

March 30, 2009 – Dr. Dime

With the NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four less than a week away, I can’t help but get filled with anticipation of what the Final Four matches will bring. Every year there are huge personal performances by players, and great team plays. But nothing beats a good old fashioned nail biting buzzer beater, right?

Just thinking about the possibility of seeing the next great buzzer beater has me amped for the weekend. Let’s take a look at some video replay of what I believe are the Top 5 NCAA Final Four Buzzer Beater’s of All-time:

#5 – Tate George: UConn vs. Clemson in 1990

#4 – Rip Hamilton – UConn vs. Washington in 1998

#3 – Keith Smart – Indiana vs. Syracuse in 1987

#2 – Lorenzo Charles – N.C. State vs. Houston in 1983

#1 – Christian Laettner: Duke vs. Kentucky in 1992

    Lattner’s shot is of course #1. I’m not happy to see these teams in the Final Four, they totally ruined my bracket, and it would have been neat to have 3 Big East Teams in it. One thing you’ll notice, each team has great coaches (Michigan State – Tom Izzo, North Carolina – Roy Williams, Villanova – Jay Wright, and UCONN – Jim Calhoun).

    There weren’t any major Cinderella teams this year, which really makes it a lot more interesting to root for when you have no affinity to any of the teams that are left. You might like this Top Ten NCAA Final Four Upsets:
