By March 22, 2017 July 15th, 2019 Blog

The annual NCAA college basketball tournament called March Madness is going on right now to determine the Final Four and the national champion.

Today is the 25th anniversary of arguably the most famous shot in college basketball history by Christian Laettner of Duke. Laettner played lots of ping-pong with Duke teammate and future NBA star Grant Hill. Christian Laettner was the only collegiate player of the original 1992 Dream Team at the Barcelona Olympics and would always beat Michael Jordan in ping-pong during their time together on the Dream Team. Laettner stated in an interview that ping-pong is the thing he did most outside of basketball.
