On April 6, 1992, Duke's men's basketball team clinched its second straight championship with a win over Michigan.

The title capped a season in which Duke was ranked the No. 1 team in the country every week of the season. After winning the title in 1991, a group of seasoned veterans and talented stars -- including future NBA stars Christian Laettner and Grant Hill -- played well with a target on their back.

Of course, at one point it looked like the Blue Devils wouldn't even make the Final Four in its title defense. Up against a tough Kentucky team, Duke was pushed to overtime and was down one point with just seconds left.

A loss seemed likely, and then this happened:

Duke went on to face Michigan's Fab Five in the NCAA championship game, where it handled a squadron of talented freshman with ease, winning 71-51 and grabbing a second straight title.

It would be 15 years before another school managed to win titles in back-to-back seasons.
