The Sports Archives Greatest Moments – Duke’s 1992 Overtime Win Over Kentucky

In one of the most amazing games ever played, the Duke Blue Devils came away with 104-103 overtime victory against the University of Kentucky Wildcats in the 1992 NCAA tournament.

Number 2 Kentucky had just taken the lead with 2.5 seconds left on the clock after Kentucky’s Sean Woods hit a running one-hander and seemed in control of the elite eight match-up. Duke took a timeout with just 2.1 seconds left in the overtime. Trailing by one, Duke’s Grant Hill put the ball into play by throwing it three quarters down court only to be caught by none other than Christian Laettner. If you follow Duke, you know that Laettner denied the University of Connecticut Huskies just two years earlier when he hit a 15-footer just before the buzzer in overtime. Laettner did it again, hitting a turn-around jumper at the top of the key just before the buzzer with Kentucky players in his face.

The pass and the jump shot which sunk Kentucky is one of the greatest moments in college basketball history.
