In the 1999 NCAA Division l Men’s Basketball Championship Game, Connecticut defeated Duke 77-74 to win their first ever national championship, snapping Duke’s 32-game winning streak, and scoring the biggest point-spread upset in Championship Game history. Duke’s Trajon Langdon committed a traveling violation with 5.4 seconds left and the Blue Devils trailing the Huskies by one, 75-74. UConn’s Khalid El-Amin, immediately fouled, makes both free throws to put the Huskies up by three points. The Blue Devils, who were out of timeouts, had a final chance to tie the game and force overtime. Langdon, one of college basketball’s best three-point shooters, was unable to get off a shot in the final seconds when he gets triple-teamed and falls to the floor. UConn escaped with a 77-74 victory, giving Jim Calhoun’s Huskies their first national championship.
