SB Nation Rewinder: Looking back at Ray Allen’s 1996 game-winner against Georgetown

A deep dive into one of the most iconic shots in UConn history.


Before the Huskies take on the Hoyas at noon today, SB Nation’s Secret Base takes a look back one of the most iconic games between the two schools — the 1996 Big East Tournament Championship.

The matchup was a showdown between star guards, with the UConn’s Ray Allen going toe-to-toe against Georgetown legend Allen Iverson. The game didn’t disappoint, and while Allen struggled at times, he came up big when it mattered, hitting an iconic floater in the lane to lead the Huskies to a 75-74 victory and their second ever Big East title.

Check out the video to dive deep into what made this game one of the most iconic moments in conference history.
