Davidson outlasted the Zags 82-76 in Raleigh, N.C., in the 2008 NCAA Tournament. Davidson's Stephen Curry hit a tie-breaking 3-pointer with a little more than one minute left and two key free throws in the final 15 seconds to ice the game. Gonzaga could not find an answer for Curry as the All-American guard scored 30 out of his 40 points in the second half. Gonzaga's Steven Gray tried to match Curry, connecting on seven 3-point field goals for all of his 21 points.
Last year's Comcast Battle in Seattle lived up to expectations as the second-ranked University of Connecticut Huskies defeated the seventh-ranked Bulldogs 88-83 in overtime. The overtime thriller created an atmosphere reminiscent of a March Madness game.
