Video Rewind: 1983 NCAA Basketball National Championship – North Carolina State 54, Houston 52

Game Summary: This National Championship game has held its spot in history as one of the most remarkable finishes ever. In this tale of two halves, NC State pulls out to an early lead and holds it until halftime. The second half proves to be Hakeem Olajuwon’s time to shine and Houston comes back to take the lead. The final minutes are back and forth until Dereck Whittenburg throws up a desperation shot for the win. His shot does not even come close but NC State’s Lorenzo Charles grabs the air ball and dunks it for the 54-52 win as time expires
