CINCINNATI (WKRC) - University of Kentucky fans aren't the only ones who have a hatred for Christian Laettner, as evidenced by the ESPN Film, "I Hate Christian Laettner," but they may have reason to hate him even more after Sunday.

Laettner, of course, made one of the most famous shots in college basketball history when he made a turnaround jumper in overtime to beat UK 104-103 in the 1992 East Regional final.

On Sunday it was an 18-foot jumper by North Carolina's Luke Maye with 0.3 seconds left that downed the Wildcats 75-73 in the South Regional final.

Maye's shot led Laettner to head to Twitter to rub salt in the wound for UK fans.
