#MMVault Watch Party features the Laettner buzzer-beater vs. UK

Considered by many the greatest NCAA tournament game -- and by some, the all-time best college basketball game -- the 1992 East Regional Final is remembered simply as "The Shot."

Duke, the defending national champion, trailed Kentucky 103-102 with 2.1 seconds remaining in overtime. From the  baseline, Grant Hill threw the inbounds pass the length of the court to Christian Laettner, who dribbled, turned and sank a jumpshot as the horn sounded for a one-point victory.

NCAA.com is reliving that magical moment with the #MMVault Watch Party at 7 p.m. ET Wednesday. Fans can watch the entire 1992 classic on NCAA.com and follow @marchmadness for pertinent tweets related to the game action.

Duke expects more balance in post-Zion Williamson era

Yes, the Blue Devils will be among the favorites to advance to the Final Four in Atlanta and cut down the nets as national champions. But there's a noticeable void as Duke prepares for its 40th season under head coach Mike Krzyzewski. It's the post-Zion era in Durham.
