Today’s Daily Dagger took place in the 2003 NCAA Tournament First Round match up between 6-seed and defending National Champions Maryland Terrapins and 11-seed UNC Willmington. Coming out very flat, the Terrapins were in a battle for most of the game and it looked as if Wilmington would pull off the upset. After a timeout with Maryland down 1, Drew Nicholas ran the length of the court and knocked down one of the most famous shots in tournament and Maryland history. Defeating UNC-Willmington 75-73, the Terps stormed into the locker room following the crazed senior Nicholas. To me this is what March is all about! I love this play and always will. Thanks again Drew.
Note- The clip is over 4 minutes, but he makes the shot within the 1st minute.
