Social media reacts to replay of NC State-Houston
On Saturday afternoon, CBS replayed NC State basketball's 1983 NCAA Championship win over Houston, a finish that remains one of the greatest moments in the sport's history.
Here is reaction from various social media sources rewatching the game.
Comforting that the NC State fans were booing the refs even back in 1983.— Caroline Darney (@cwdarney) March 21, 2020
After Houston won Jim was walking along the stands to come greet all of us, and it seemed like the whole Houston section stood, pointed at him and started yelling, "You're next!"— Bob Valvano (@espnVshow) March 21, 2020
I remember thinking it sounds like they're calling for a mob hit. Scary. Houston was scary.
These State uniforms are FIRE with "STATE" on the jerseys and "PACK" on the shorts.— Caroline Darney (@cwdarney) March 21, 2020
What I learned from watching the first half of the 1983 title game:— Ken Pomeroy (@kenpomeroy) March 21, 2020
- flopping was a problem in 1983 (or maybe just for Terry Gannon)
- Guy Lewis was willing to play his star player with *3* fouls in the first half
- before the shot clock, basketball was kind of boring
State getting killed on the o-boards, a tale as old as...well, as I am— Lauren Brownlow (@lebrownlow) March 21, 2020
Trying to watch this 1983 NCAA Championship Rewind on CBS. This NC State-Houston title game is great, but the TV analyst is driving me absolutely nuts. 🤣— Mark Packer (@MarkPacker) March 21, 2020

Just think....if Benny Anders steals my pass with 5 secs to go....— Thurl Bailey (@bigTbailey) March 21, 2020
Fans just on the court it's total madness. THERE'S A GUY ON THE BASKET WHAT IS HAPPENING. THIS SEEMS UNSAFE. THERE'S A SECOND PLAYER UP THERE.— Caroline Darney (@cwdarney) March 21, 2020
NC State. Sharpie.— Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) March 21, 2020
I was sitting on press row when Lorenzo Charles made the dunk to beat Houston in Albuquerque. Being the objective reporter I jumped out of my seat and yelled "They did it!" Then I looked at my watch. I had 40 minutes before my next deadline. It was an incredible night.— Tony Barnhart (@MrCFB) March 21, 2020
