greatest game you ever attended
Easy for me - 2011 NBA Finals game 5. The last home game of the most incredible sports season of my life.

RE: greatest game you ever attended
Wichita State/Gonzaga. 2nd round of the NCAA tournament in SLC 2013. That game is generally overlooked as a great NCAA tournament game and one of the most improbable offensive barrages in tournament history. In the college basketball landscape we were a general unknown at that point. If that same game happened now it would probably be more widely regarded. That game was so important for Wichita State too. We play that game ten times and I honestly feel like we lose 8 or 9 times out of ten. If not for that insane offensive barrage we definitely lose. If we lose that game, no Final Four. Maybe Gregg never quite believes he can win a National Championship at Wichita State without the Final Four and he leaves. Maybe we never get into in The American without the Final Four. Absolutely amazing game and it just adds to it that it was probably the turning point in Wichita State history.

I'm so old . . . . .

UCLA @ Tennessee football in Memphis c. '65 or '66. I was a kid selling programs and got in free of course. Great game.

Memphis vs Texas AM in the Sweet 16 at the Alamodome...we advanced to the Elite Eight off free-throws.

little did I know we would be back in San Antonio for the FF the next season. (I was only able to make our games in Little Rock during the 08 tourney)

final minute

1A. Tulsa @ Notre Dame, 2010. We scored 1 offensive TD, 2 FG's, 1 punt return TD, 1 Pick Six, and had a 2pt conversion off a blocked extra point attempt, and missed one of our extra points I think? We beat ND 28-27 after we intercepted them in the endzone. You'd thought we'd won the Super Bowl.

1B. Beating Iowa State in the 2012 Liberty Bowl. There were way more ISU fans but we smoked them anyways. Tied a program best with an 11-3 record.

On the losing side, BYU v SMU in the Holiday Bowl in the eighties. Unbelievable comeback by McMahon/BYU. Good side, SMU v Nevada, Hawaii Bowl a few years ago.

Cincy at Pitt in 2009. Amazing football game that had it all as a fan. Capped off an undefeated year and a conference championship. Close second would be Marquette at UC in 2002 when Marq had Wade.

Greatest ever in a losing effort was the UC/UConn conf tournament game in Orlando last year.

Greatest neutral game was probably Pitt and Butler in the 2011 NCAA tourney round of 32. What a cluster that ending was.

I was at that game also. My father was a huge UT fan and he and I went. I remember it very well.

Dewey Warren VS Gary Beban. Memphis native Tommy Protho was HC of the Bruins and didn't like how the officials called the game and stated "I'm ashamed to be a southerner" after the game.

Last game of the regular season with UCLA going to the Rose Bowl and UT was going to the Bluebonnet Bowl, so that game was given the "RoseBonnet Bowl" name.

Temple 27 psu 10 in 2015. Temple had lost 30+ times in a row to them, and we were dogs in this one. Full stadium at the Linc, serenading the nit fans as they left in droves at the end of the 3rd quarter.

Temple 34 Navy 10 American Conference Championship game 2016. You had to have seen the 25 years of football futility for the Owls to understand how huge this was.
