NCAA Basketball Notes

March 14, 2017

Last weekend in conference tournament play, both Duke and Michigan won 4 games on 4 consecutive days to win the ACC and Big Ten Tournaments respectively.

The link between Duke and Michigan could take me to Duke’s repeat title win vs Michigan in 1992 but instead takes me back to 1964 and 1965.

In those seasons, the great John Wooden won his first two titles winning finals games vs Duke in 1964 and vs Michigan in 1965.

Gail Goodrich, a great basketball player, led the 1965 title win vs Michigan, scoring 42 points. Later he teamed with # 44, the great Jerry West to form one of the great backcourt combinations in NBA history, with the Los Angeles Lakers.
