It was on this date in 2001 when USC upset Boston College, 74-71, in Uniondale, N.Y. The hero was reserve point guard Robert Hutchinson, who made five free throws in the final 1:17 to seal the victory. Jeff Trepagnier (above) had 18 points and David Bluthenthal 20.
Then came the heartwarming day after when Coach Henry Bibby told the team he would show them New York City and took them to dinner at Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC).
The Trojans upset Kentucky in the Sweet 16 before losing to Duke in the Elite Eight.
