42. Duke's historic rally

The Blue Devils were in a hole. A serious hole. A "they'll never make it out of this one" hole. With nearly seven minutes to play in the first half of a 2001 Final Four matchup against Maryland, the Blue Devils were down 39-17. At one point, coach Mike Krzyzewski told his team, "You're losing by so much, you can't play any worse. So what are you worried about, losing by 40?" Well, Duke orchestrated one of the greatest comebacks in NCAA tournament history, beating the Terrapins 95-84. The greatest comeback by a winning team in the Final Four was achieved with tenacity and is still discussed more than a decade later. -- Myron Medcalf
