I well remember all the hype about the team, how they "played above the rim," and the huge crash back to Earth at their shocking loss to NC State in the NCAA Finals. (They lost to Patrick Ewing and Georgetown the next year.)

They certainly did a lot to help explode basketball in the national consciousness.
