52. UConn upsets Duke

Heading into the 1999 NCAA tournament, Duke was a popular pick to win its third national championship of the decade, and it entered the championship game against UConn as 9.5-point favorites (a tournament record). But behind 27 points from Rip Hamilton and clutch free throws from Khalid El-Amin, the Huskies took down the Blue Devils 77-74, ending Duke's 32-game win streak and clinching UConn's first national title. "We're a great basketball team, and we beat another great basketball team, but we're not shocked," UConn coach Jim Calhoun said after the game. "We truly believed we could beat them." -- Teddy Mitrosilis
