1986–Texas wins the women’s NCAA basketball title with a 97-81 victory over Southern Cal.

1987–Keith Smart’s 16-foot jump shot gives Indiana a 74-73 victory over Syracuse for the NCAA men’s basketball championship.

1995–Maine beats Michigan 4-3 in triple overtime, the longest hockey game in NCAA tournament history, to advance to the NCAA title game.

1997–Betsy King, an LPGA Hall of Famer, overcomes a three-shot deficit over the last eight holes for her third Dinah Shore title.

2001–Michael Phelps becomes the youngest American swimmer to set a world record, winning the 200-meter butterfly in the USA Swimming Championships in 1 minute, 54.92 seconds. Phelps, 15, breaks the record of 1:55.18 set by Olympic gold medalist Tom Malchow in June.

2003–Martin Brodeur becomes the first NHL goalie with four 40-win seasons as New Jersey beat the New York Islanders 6-0.

2009–Dwight Howard scores 22 points and grabs 18 rebounds in a 101-95 win over Miami 101-95 and passes Wilt Chamberlain as the youngest NBA player to reach 5,000 boards. Howard reached the 5,000-rebound mark–he now has 5,006–at the age of 23 years, 112 days. Chamberlain was 25 years, 128 days old when he got his 5,000th rebound.
