Retro College Cuts

The college basketball season is in full swing, and while March is still a little ways away, this season is providing more than enough drama. Between hot starts from overachieving teams like Wisconsin and Iowa State to the arguments over how good these star freshmen really are, the conference season is only going to get better.

    Okay Dime Mag and the wonderful readers, the year was 2008, It was a cold winter season in basketball, but despite the frigid cold weather, there was one thing keeping The Burgh heated…The flaming hot Pittsburgh Panthers Basketball team. Led by Sam Young, DeJuan Blair and Levance Fields, these boys started a fire that the likes of most teams just could NOT put out! Even the highly ranked number one spot UCONN Huskies got their ears clipped when trying to tame this raging fire. This was a historical year for the Panthers considering they received their first number one rank in the schools history, and had reached the Elite Eight for the first time since 1974. The panthers had a roar in 2008 that was louder then ever heard before and had most people shocked and in disbelief. Jamie Dixon was holding the reigns to a team that just could not be stopped, or so it seemed..It was a wonderful two weeks in the city of Pittsburgh, and just when the good people of that city thought they could put their coats away from all the heat that this team brought, there were VILLains in Villanova who had a sinister plot to bring the snow and freeze the perfect 16-0 record that the Panthers had strived so hard to achieve. Although, the panthers were perfect and lead by a coach who claimed the ‘coach of the year’ award, it just wasn’t enough to keep them perfect in the post season. In a thriller that even Michael Jackson would have deemed worthy of the name, the Panthers lost their roar and it seemed that a cold front was on the way to the Steel City. The game was close and left everyone standing from their seats, but falling finally was a team that most would have thought was going to take it all, but at the same time most didn’t expect them there in the first place. It was an incredible year and one to be proud of regardless, but in the end when it was all said and done, the Panthers ended the season 28-3. In my opinion this was one of the best moments in college ball history, and that moment being the 2008-2009 season of the Panther.

    Randolph Childress ankle breaker. It was really one of the first times I’ve seen someone get crossed over this bad and had the big confidence to show up the defender and knock down the shot. Crossing over defenders was never the same.

    The moment when Jordan hit that clutch jumper back at UNC…I know I’m young but still that’s the most memorable moment in college sports history because, from that point onward a legend was noticed and was in the spotlight n the face of basketball period
