Lamp and Raker were long gone when we made that Final Four. The 84

team that made it was Othell, R. Stokes, Edelin, Carlisle, Jimmy Miller, T. Mullen . . . Really a team that had no business making it but somehow did, probably a karma reward for the agony of two years prior. Indiana took out the No.1 overall seed UNC (Jordan) that year for us, then Othell ruined Steve Alford forever, and we beat Indiana in Atlanta in the regional final. We then had Houston and Olajuwon on the ropes in the semis only to lose at the end.

The 80-81 team was the other Final Four team. Ralph, Lamp, Raker, Jones, Gates, C. Robinson, Othell and Ricky (both freshmen). That was the one that lost to UNC in the semis (Al Wood (39 points) killed us) then beat LSU in the last consolation game played, the day (or day after?) Reagan was shot.
