1963, easily the best title game that I have ever seen.
2007 AAAA Championship game - Buffalo vs Robbinsdale. As noted on the MSHSL website (http://mshsl.org/mshsl/index.asp):
"Buffalo 67, Robbinsdale Armstrong 65 -- 2007 Class AAAA Championship
There are no real Cinderella stories anymore because everybody plays schools of roughly their same size. So it was that 12,861 fans — the second most to see any state tournament session in the four-class era — found their way into Target Center for championship Saturday night 2007 to see the closest thing to a Cinderella that they’re likely to see, the big school from the small town, the Buffalo Bison. The score was tied at 2, 4, 7, 9, 14, 16, 22, 40, 49, 52, 55, 57 and 65, although Armstrong somehow had fashioned a 38-28 lead with 14:30 to play. With the score tied at 55, a TV timeout intruded on the excitement. There was nothing for fans to do — including the partisans in the two end zones but also, amazingly, the unaffiliated in the reserved seats at sidecourt — but to rise and give both teams a standing ovation for the outstanding play. Buffalo roared back to lead 63-58, but Tom Knorr, Carter Biewen and Alex Rubin forged that 65-all tie at 0:18. That’s when Darrin Olmscheid drove into the lane and scored at 0:02.4 to bring the state title home to Buffalo."
El-Amin's performance in the ill-fated Sweet 16 format was also incredible.
