Following its first national championship, Duke had its sights set on becoming the first repeat champion since UCLA in 1973. With the luxury of keeping its primary rotation headlined by the tremendous trio of Christian Laettner, Bobby Hurley and Grant Hill, expectations were at an all-time high for the defending champions.
As the Blue Devils ran through the regular season suffering only two losses, both in ACC play, it became evident that they were an unstoppable force primed for a repeat.
With an ACC regular-season and tournament championship to their credit, the Blue Devils looked ahead to the NCAA tournament, seemingly unbeatable to the rest of the country.
For the first three games of the tournament, Duke easily cruised to victory. Then, in the Elite Eight, a team that earned the moniker "The Unforgettables", the Kentucky Wildcats, took Duke to the brink of defeat in a game that no one would ever forget.
Considered "the greatest game ever played," Duke and Kentucky tested each other in every way possible in a game that was back-and-forth for two perfectly played halves and one monumental overtime period.
With a fifth consecutive Final Four appearance on the line for the Blue Devils, they were staring a 103-102 deficit dead in the eye in overtime with 2.2 seconds left to play.
Duke needed one play. One chance. And most importantly, hope.
As Grant Hill lined up on the baseline, a near full-court pass was going to one man. A man, to this day, that is considered the greatest player in Duke history, Christian Laettner.
Hill tossed a perfect pass in the general area of where Laettner was standing. As the 6'11" big man lunged forward and plucked the ball out of midair, the idea that Duke could still win this game was becoming more real.
Laettner took one dribble, turned and put the shot up with only tenths of a second to spare.
Duke had survived, 104-103.
Laettner's game-winner capped off a remarkable performance, as he scored 31 points without missing a shot for the entire game.
The win propelled Duke into the Final Four and kept its championship chances alive.
In that year's Final Four, Duke turned back a challenge from the Indiana Hoosiers to advance to the title game against the Michigan Wolverines. In a highly-anticipated rematch from a December meeting (Duke won 88-85 in overtime), Duke controlled from start to finish, easily defeating Michigan for its second national championship.
It has been 21 years since that historic championship run. From sheer dominance throughout the year, to a game not to be forgotten that eventually culminated in back-to-back championships, the season of 1991-92 for the Duke Blue Devils will rank as the absolute best of all time in program history.
