Among other things, the 2012 NCAA Tournament featured two 15 seeds pulling upsets for the first time ever, four perennial powerhouses in the national semfinals, and a championship game that pitted two of the sport's biggest names against one another.
What it didn't feature, and what fans were begging for from the moment the first game's tipped off, was a buzzer-beater.
It might be a few months late, but Alabama's Trevor Lacey aims to please.
Lacey's shot lifted the Crimson Tide to a 70-67 victory over visiting South Dakota State. The heroics spoiled a memorable performance by Jackrabbit star Nate Wolters, who scored 30 points on 10-of-15 shooting, including 5-of-6 from beyond the arc.
Junior guard Trevor Releford came off the bench to lead Alabama in scoring with 18 points.
