With a cast chock full of future NBA legends, the Tar Heels won their second NCAA title (Dean Smith's first) and handed Patrick Ewing and the Hoyas a heart-wrenching loss. Michael Jordan hit the game-winning jumper with just 17 seconds remaining. Georgetown tried to get a shot off in the final second, but a botched play put James Worthy on the foul line with no timeouts remaining for the Hoyas. Worthy missed his shots, but the game was over.
