AJV, "Any underdog deserves consideration; the fact that they were lead by a great Italian-American earns them spots in the top 10."
Boss, "Never has a program lived off of one success more than the Wolfpack...its kind of sad, and it only happened because Guy Lewis botched the game strategy. "
Captain, "I love watching the end / post game. Raw emotion from Jim Valvano, huge upset, everything that college hoops is about. If you don't like this game you're a commie. "
Russianator, "Derrick Whittenberg, Lorenzo Charles and Jimmy V running around like a mad man. An all time classic."
Champ, "I remember staying up late to watch this one as a kid on a little black and white TV in our kitchen. Houston Cougars, another stacked team never to win a title. The ending is just an iconic moment in American sports history."
