This happened in 1990 when the NCAA tournament was becoming must see TV. ESPN had not gotten lazy and politicized and the guys calling the games loved it. Loved the sport and the atmosphere. Duke, UNLV, UNC and big Hank Gathers from Loyola. Gone too soon.
Gathers had led the country in both scoring and rebounding. He was the focal point of coach Paul Westhead’s cavalry-charge offense. The Lions didn’t just beat you in those days, they scored 150 points on you.
