Paul:
Vah Horne is perhaps the best player in Utah history. He graduated on 1997. Ironically, Utah reaches the national final the following year (1998), something Vah Horne is never able to achieve for Utah.
The player from Utah is Andrew Miller, an excellent guard. I remember hearing a sports commentator said 'how a team with Andrew Miller can lose'

Sorry.
Butler left UConn this year. Richardson also did not play for Michigan St. in 1999.
But nice try!

Guesses work sometimes too. Although the picture of Cleeves limping up the court in the finals sure comes to mind.

Yes, when you know too much, it is easy to mix up. In the game of basketball, even the greatest coach does not know for sure.
