Coach Jimmy Valvano at Pep Rally Before 1983 NC State Enters NCAA Final Four

Coach Jimmy Valvano (right) with Dereck Whittenburg, starting guard of the legendary North Carolina State 1983 NCAA Championship team. The pep rally drew more than 6,000 people to cheer the "Cardiac Pack" who made the Final Four series and defeated Hakeem Alajuwon's Houston Cougars (54-52) when Whittenburg's 30-foot airball received a big alley-oop dunk by Lorenzo Charles at the buzzer. It's considered one of the greatest upsets in sports history.
