Twenty years after Danny and the Miracles captured the 1988 NCAA Championship, the 2008 Kansas Jayhawks -- in one of the greatest championship game comebacks of all time -- grabbed the third title in school history by defeating the Memphis Tigers 75-68 in overtime. Down nine points with 2:12 left in the game, Kansas decided to gamble and put the Tigers on the foul line. Memphis missed four out of five free throws in that span, which would have put the championship out of the Jayhawks reach. The strategy paid off, allowing Mario Chalmers, the tournament's Most Outstanding Player, to make what Kansas coach Bill Self called "probably the biggest shot ever made in Kansas history." With 10.8 seconds remaining in the game, trailing by three points and with no time outs remaining, the Jayhawks quickly ran down the floor. Sherron Collins handed the ball off to Chalmers at the top of the 3-point line, who drained the heavily defended shot with 2.1 seconds remaining to tie the game at 63, forcing overtime. During the overtime period, the Kansas momentum proved too much for Memphis, and the Jayhawks cruised to the national championship. The official CBS Sports 2008 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship DVD includes the commercial-free championship and semi-final games as well as a tournament recap and special bonus features.
