    If Mashburn does not foul out they win that game. Michigan had no answer for him in that OT and the minute he commits that fifth foul their whole demeanor changed.

    I donít know if they would have beat UNC because Dale Brown was hurt but with Brown they would have won.

    If Elgin Baylor had not fouled for Seattle in the 1958 championship game at Freedom Hall, UK probably would not have won. It was UK's strategy to foul him out. That's been part of basketball since time immemorial.

    Correct.

    They destroyed Duncan much later.

    Randolph Childress was on that '93 team too, if I remember right.

    Actually he didn’t foul out but carried four fouls most of the second half and didn’t really play any defense then.

    Kentucky vs. Seattle (March 22, 1958)

    That's right. Got my years mixed up. That weekend was unbelievable. They followed that WF win up with an equal domination of FSU.

    I could come up with a few, but with what we got now, I’d say the last one.
