26NCAA BBLooking for Someone to Hug
Date / Apr 4, 1983
Location / University Arena | Albuquerque, N.M.
Moment / Lorenzo Charles's put-back dunk at the buzzer gave N.C. State an upset win over Houston in the title game of the 1983 NCAA tournament.
Impact / Houston, 31-2 entering the game, was one of the most talented college teams of all time, but it was no match for the "Cardiac Pack." Jim Valvano's squad won close game after close game, and the lasting image from this tournament remains an elated Valvano looking for someone to celebrate with after N.C. State's unlikely victory.
