Remember When Louisville's Jeff Hall Chucked The Ball At Duke's Danny Ferry After Winning The 1986 Title? We do!

Still funny.

Here's a little throwback video ahead of Louisville's Final Four matchup against Wichita State tonight. The last time the Cardinals won the NCAA Tournament (1986), there was a bit of controversy as time expired. 

Louisville's Jeff Hall intercepted a pass from Duke's Danny Ferry, and when Hall went to take one last shot, Ferry grabbed him mid-air. In response, Hall turned around and chucked the ball at Ferry as time expired, missing the first few seconds of the celebration with his team.

We probably won't have a repeat of the incident tonight, because it would result in three fouls, two technicals, the ball, and a $50,000 fine, but you never know.
