On a loaded Indiana team, Keith Smart was the team's forgotten fifth-leading scorer at 11.2 points per game. But Smart came up big in the national title game against Syracuse, posting 21 points, including a game-winning baseline jumper with five seconds left. Indiana wanted All-American Steve Alford to take the final shot, but the Orange defense had him blanketed. "I wasn't surprised I got the ball," Smart told USA Today. "I was surprised it went in."
