    I have two, both of which I was at. The first was the 46-44 win over UCLA in 1969. Surreal! We all ran around the court like Jim Valvano because we didn't know what else to do. The second was in the Sweet 16 in Philadelphia against Kentucky in 2001. I shared a limo from the hotel with some Kentucky fans. They talked shit the whole time. That limo was nowhere to be found when it was time to go home :-)

    Not too much history to choose from. I agree with Trojack.
    I was at the 1969 game at the Sports Arena, we lost in double OT, almost won in the 1st OT. The next night at Pauley, Powell made the last second shot. We bRuined long wins streaks - consecutive wins at Pauley and over SC. We beat the greatest college player and coach of all time - Alcindor and Wooden. That started the Boyd run in the early 70's.
    My top five games may be of wins over Fucla - they have a special significance to me.
