9. Drew Nicholas outlasts UNC-Wilmington.
Steve Blake was the star of the 2003 Maryland Terrapins, but a lesser-known fella named Drew Nicholas helped the Terps survive a first-round scare. With five seconds left, down by one and needing to go the full length of the court, Gary Williams had no choice but to give the ball to someone other than Blake, who was being hounded by two defenders. Why not a senior? Boy, did he deliver.
