BR StudiosFeatured ColumnistMarch 3, 2014

Michael Jordan was simply a freshman in 1982, playing on one of the best college teams in history, a North Carolina squad headlined by James Worthy.

Much was expected of Worthy's matchup with Georgetown center Patrick Ewing in the national title game. And even in the final seconds, Dean Smith looked to his big man to win the game.

Relive the shot that put Jordan on the national stage and leave a comment below.
