1) 2001 vs. Kansas. I think we were ranked #7 and KU was #6. That game was the reason for the voucher system as students camped on the steps of Hilton (some built fires) the night before. I got in line around 7am (it was an afternoon game) and just barely made it into the last row in the arena circle. I've never seen anything like it.
2) 2004 vs. Texas. Probably the single loudest moment I've heard Hilton in when Boddiker went to the line.
1992 vs. OSU like a couple have said. Was behind the basket ten rows on the side Alexander was shooting FTs at the end. I don't think the younger generation understands how loud it was that game. It was incredible.
OSU in '92. My honorable mention games are:
WBB versus Texas in 1999. Taylor hits a turn around, nearly half court 3 pointer to win 71-68
Texas in 2000. The famous Fizer dunk.
WBB versus #1/2 Texas Tech in '04. 64-63. Electric.
and yes I know this is a men's thread...just puttin' the word out! :)

When we beat #2 Minnesota (w/ Randy Brewer) back in the early 80s. We were down by 6 pts with 26 secs left (before the 3-pt shot) and missed a shot for the win with 3 seconds left. Went on to win it in OT. That game always comes to mind when we are losing by a couple possessions with under a minute to play. I always think we've still got a chance.

2004 Texas has my vote. I remember rushing the court that game, and not even realizing I was doing it. Hard to explain but the student section was going absolutely nuts, and once the game ended, it was like a wave of people hitting the court.
