Brown: History Connects College Basketball

Brown: History Connects College Basketball

My love for college basketball goes beyond a perfectly executed play or a clutch defensive stop.

It’s the history of the game attracts me, and the fact that many times you don’t appreciate what you’re seeing until much later.

The best example I can think of happened in the ninth game of Iowa’s 1965-66 season. The Hawkeyes, 8-0 and ranked fourth in the country, got beat by Texas Western in the finals of the Sun Bowl Tournament in El Paso, Texas, 86-68.

Iowa went without a field goal for a stretch of more than 10 minutes in the opening half and trailed by 21 points at halftime.
