Oh great, one of those "You don't know what Hilton Magic really is" posts.
Ahh goosebumps every time
Where oh where has our Hilton Magic gone?
I miss winning. I miss the home court advantage.
I miss exceptional play and athleticism.
I pray to God this year is the year it'll return with vengeance.
Go Cyclones, goddammit go!
Crap video quality
But this is pretty close to my top memory.
- Barry Stevens’ game winner vs Mizzou in 83
- The double OT Iowa game in 84 when Barry Stevens fouled out (that’s the picture I’d love to find online)
- Any of the four wins against KU from 85-88 against Danny Manning/Larry Brown
- The mich st. OT win against scott skiles
- The Lafester iowa game, 102-100 in OT
- Brian Pearson draining three’s to beat OU
- Any number of home games when the entire crowd would make a VVVVVVVVVVV for big Vic
- The tom Schafer game winner against OU? Missouri?
- Hoiberg, as a freshman, dunking on Acie Earl
- The infamous 92 okie state game when Thigpen went nuts
- Hoiberg’s 32 pts against KU
- Willoughby’s 9 3’s against KU (even though we lost)
- Fizer’s dunk to beat KU, last home game of the season, when he was a soph
- Fizer’s infamous dunk on Mihm
- The second half against OU in 01 when JT went off from three and we scored 58pts in a half
- Jake Sullivan against Texas in ’04 when Boddicker choked at the line
Ok, clearly my bias is good teams/good seasons/key games, but there are a ton of Hilton memories at least on par with a fancy dunk against UVA. Let's call that best play #17 :wink:
Hilton Magic will come back...its easy to cherry pick 15 moments from nearly 30 seasons.....

Either way the UVA game will always stand out in my mind because of that play. I have that game taped too but just cant find it.
