I ran across this newspaper article earlier today
6. David Thompson, N.C. State, 1974
In the national semifinals, â€œSkywalkerâ€ led N.C. State to a victory over UCLA, ending the Bruinsâ€™ record streak of seven consecutive titles. Thompson scored 28 points â€” including hitting the game-winning shot â€” and grabbed 10 boards in the double overtime victory. He also had 21 points and seven rebounds in N.C. Stateâ€™s 76-64 win over Marquette in the title game. But the most impressive win that year may have been over Maryland in the ACC title game.
