ESPN 30 for 30: Survive and Advance
In 1983, the NC State Wolfpack, coached by Jim Valvano, stayed alive in the postseason by winning nine do-or-die games in a row -- seven of which they were losing in the final minute – beating the likes of Michael Jordan and three-time National Player of the Year Ralph Sampson. The unlikely squad made it to the national championship game against No. 1 Houston, aka Phi Slama Jama, a team featuring future NBA Top 50 all-time players. NC State went down as possibly the best college basketball game in history – ending with one of the most well-known plays of all time. Told through the eyes of Dereck Whittenburg, the film takes a poignant look at Jim Valvano and his remarkable impact.
