Recalling The 1967 NCAA Basketball Title Game

March 25, 2020

One team that in unusual fashion, had an NCAA title shot this season, of course wiped away by the coronavirus,  was Dayton University.

Today I note is the 53 year anniversary of the only NCAA final game appearance for the Flyers (Dayton), that in a loss to the great UCLA team led by the then Lew Alcindor, later Kareem Abdul Jabbar.

Donnie May, later a bench player usually, if not always, after the game’s result was decided, for the title winning, 1970 New York Knicks led that ’67 Dayton team.
