The greatest shot in Spectrum history?

I got word late last night that Phil Anastasia was writing a piece for the package on the Spectrum closing about Christian Laettner's famous buzzer-beater against Kentucky in the 1992 NCAA Tournament.

I got word late last night that Phil Anastasia was writing a piece for the package on the Spectrum closing about Christian Laettner's famous buzzer-beater against Kentucky in the 1992 NCAA Tournament.

So I started digging around to see if I could find a picture from the game in any of our archives. It took a while, but (thanks in no small part to the All-Star Game marathon) I was finally able to find one in color.

Take a look at this photo. It was taken by the Durham Herald-Sun's Chuck Liddy, but ended up in the Inquirer's archives somehow. I'm not complaining.

It's definitely of Laettner's shot - just look at the scoreboard.

More coverage

You all tell me: was it the greatest shot in Spectrum history?
