For most players, this would have been the pinnacle of a career - hitting the game-winning shot in the National Championship game. For Michael Jordan, it was just the beginning! As a freshman for the 1981-82 University of North Carolina Tar Heels, Michael was not expected to be a major factor. Yet, by tournament time, he was firmly established as the go-to man, hitting clutch shots and making highlight-reel dunks on a nightly basis. When UNC faced off against Georgetown in the NCAA finals on March 29, it was Patrick Ewing’s legendary squad heading home in defeat, as the 19-year-old Jordan put a dagger in their hearts and earned himself the first of a career full of great moments and major championships.
