32. Hampton prevails

Perhaps not as iconic as Jim Valvano's desperate search for someone to celebrate with, Steve Merfeld's celebration of Hampton's improbable win against Iowa State in 2001 is no less memorable. The MEAC school, a 15-seed, upset the Cyclones on Tarvis Williams' jumper with 6.9 seconds left. But it was Merfeld's reaction as much as Williams' shot that became the shining moment. The diminutive coach ran around the court in jubilation until one of his players, David Johnson, found Merfeld and lifted him in the air, the coach's legs dangling and fists pumping like a giddy toddler. -- Dana O'Neil
