With Duke-UNC on the horizon, it’s a good time to look at some past classic buzzer beaters in the series. First up is Gene Banks in 1981, giving a young Coach K his first win over the Tar Heels.

Bonus - Warden Norton from the Shawshank Redemption makes a brief cameo at the :48 section mark.

Also, note how different Cameron is, notably the old blue wall above the student section which is covered in signs and banners.
