The title alone of this new ESPN special should cause some screeching or at least some serious eye-rolling among local Tar Heel fans: "The Last Great Game: Duke vs. Kentucky" airs Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. on ESPNU.
The 30-minute program, which is based on a premise set forth in Gene Wojciechowski's book of the same title, features former players, coaches and basketball analysts who argue that the 1992 overtime thriller between Duke and Kentucky was the last great game in men's college basketball.
Duke won the game 104-103 on a last-second shot by Christian Laettner.
There's insight from members of both ’92 teams, including Laettner and Grant Hill, as well as Kentucky’s Jamal Mashburn and John Pelphrey. Then-assistant coaches Mike Brey, Jay Bilas and Billy Donovan add their eyewitness accounts, while basketball analyst Len Elmore, who called the game for CBS, rounds out the discussion of the legendary game that propelled Duke to its 2nd straight National Championship.
