Flashback Friday: Happy Birthday Jim Calhoun

On Thursday Jim Calhoun celebrated his 70th birthday.
On the same day, Ray Allen and the Boston Celtics celebrated taking the first round of the playoffs by knocking out the Atlanta Hawks in six games. 

On this Flashback Friday we are going to revisit a game that happened well before NCAA and NBA Championships were a reality for these men. Watch as the UConn Huskies battle in the final seconds of the 1996 Big East Championship after  trailing 13 points with less than three minutes on the clock.

(PS. My favorite part of this video is not Iverson, or Allen's head of hair, or even Jim Calhoun's condolence face... rather, it is Dick Vitale yelling unbeeelievaaableee in his trademark voice!)
