Kansas Jayhawks product Mario Chalmers celebrated his school’s run to the national championship on Monday in March Madness. But 14 years ago, Chalmers hit the shot to force overtime, helping Kansas to win the 2008 championship.Before Kansas coach Bill Self celebrated the 2022 title with Chalmers and other alumni, the two led KU to the national title over Memphis 75-68 in 2008.

Chalmers hit the biggest shot of Self’s tenure at Kansas. His rainbow 3-pointer with 2.1 seconds remaining, called “Mario’s Miracle,” sent the game to overtime. Memphis missed four of five free throws in the final 1:15. After Derrick Rose made just one of two free throws with 10.8 seconds left, Chalmers tied the game at 63-63 at the other end.
