Joe Quigg will tell you he wasn’t the least bit nervous on March 23, 1957, the evening when he stepped to the free throw line with six seconds remaining in the third overtime of the NCAA basketball championship at Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, Missouri. “I’m going to make ’em both, Coach,” he told Frank McGuire. He made the free throws. (Fayetteville Observer)
