Laettner's Winning Shot [video]
Christian Laettner had one of the most successful college basketball careers in NCAA History. The only player in history to start in four consecutive NCAA Final Fours, Laettner led Duke to consecutive NCAA titles in 1991 and 1992.
He is the All-time NCAA Tournament career scoring leader with 407 points, and is the winner of the Wooden, Kodak/NABC and Naismith Awards as the National Player of the Year in 1992. He holds the distinct honor of being the only collegiate player selected as a member of the 1992 U.S Men’s Olympic Basketball "Dream Team" which won the gold medal in Barcelona.
After being drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves as the third overall selection of the 1992 NBA Draft he averaged 16.5 ppg and 7.8 rpg in his first seven seasons with the Timberwolves and Atlanta Hawks.
A four-year starter at Duke University, the 6-foot-11, 235-pound Laettner set an NCAA Division I record for most games, (148). He played for two NCAA tournament champions, in 1991 and 1992. He averaged 16.6 points for his collegiate career and 21.5 as a senior, when he was a near unanimous choice as college player of the year.
In his college career, he hit 45.5 percent of his 3-point shots (79 of 163) and his 17-foot shot while double-teamed with time running out in overtime beat Kentucky 104-103 to get Duke into the Final Four in 1992. This game has been widely considered as the greatest collegiate game to ever be played.
