After a Syracuse missed free throw on a one and one, Indiana took the ball up the court down by one with 28 seconds left in 1987 NCAA championship game.

This gave Keith Smart just enough time to hit one of the most storied shots in the tournament's history.

With just two seconds left, Smart hit a corner jumper giving the Hoosiers the 74-73 lead and victory.
