NC State was the ultimate underdog, winning games in the final moments against much deeper competition. And particularly since their coach Jim Valvano’s passing from cancer several years ago, this Wolfpack team has been memorialized as perhaps the most cherished championship team in college basketball history.</p> Wed, 27 Mar 2013 19:37:19 +0000 Keith Strudler 60835 at http://wamc.org WAMC Morning Edition Sports Update http://wamc.org/post/wamc-morning-edition-sports-update-44 <p>Saint Mary's and North Carolina A&amp;T are the first two winners in the NCAA men's basketball tournament.
