Walton hit the boards
March 26, 1973 - In the NCAA Tournament final in St. Louis, Bill Walton had the game of his life. No matter how Memphis State attempted to defense him, Walton found a way to beat it.
Driving one-on-one, hitting jump shots, guiding teammates' lob passes into the basketball, Walton scored 44 points, breaking Gail Goodrich's NCAA championship game record of 42. Incredibly, Walton missed only one of 22 field-goal attempts. (From the foul line, he was 2-of-5.)
