    CHICAGO - One of the most memorable contests in college basketball history will make its Big Ten Network debut at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Feb. 10, on The Big Ten's Greatest Games.

    Keith Smart's jumper in the final seconds of the 1987 NCAA Championship Game lifted Indiana to a 74-73 victory against a star-studded Syracuse team that featured Derrick Coleman, Rony Seikaly and Sherman Douglas. Steve Alford led Indiana with 23 points, and Smart's 16-foot baseline jumper became one of the most famous shots in college basketball history. The game also featured a pair of Hall of Fame coaches, Indiana's Bob Knight and Syracuse's Jim Boeheim.

    The 1987 classic will precede the Indiana-Minnesota game at 9 p.m. ET. Dave Revsine and Shon Morris will call the action from Minneapolis.
