1999 National Champions
March 29, 1999 - UCONN 77 - Duke 74
A panoramic view in St. Petersburg, Florida - The Rob Arra Collection
With 5.2 seconds left in the game, not a single spectator was sitting. The unthinkable was about to occur - Elton Brand's heavily-favored Duke Blue Devils were about to be upset for the National Championship by UCONN! The giant heart of the Huskies was too strong for mighty Duke, and as the clock ticked down, fans were cheering for the mighty underdogs. As Khalid El-Amin sets to release his final free-throw that would count as the final point of the game...SNAP! The moment is preserved for all-time, and is now available for your wall.
This beautiful print, from Rob Arra's Everlasting Images collection, is the perfect way to commemorate the amazing championship exploits of Richard Hamilton, Jake Voskuhl, El-Amin, Souleymane Wane, Albert Mouring, Kevin Freeman, Ricky Moore, and the rest of the boys. As with all posters in the Everlasting Images series, the entire scene is in perfect focus, and as you pan across the image you feel like you are actually there, back at Tropicana Field in St. Pete, watching the finest moment in University of Connecticut Athletics history. From the scoreboards above, to the fans in the stands, to the cheerleaders beyond the baseline, to the hordes of reporters at courtside, to the players on the benches and the ballers on the court, it's all here! A stunning poster and historic collector's item, worthy of a nice frame and a prominent spot at home or office.
