Nova played almost a perfect game to win that title.

Aug 31, 17, 06:58 AM #4From memory, Villanova was 79% FG (22-28) for the game and 90% (9-10) in the 2nd half, the last college game without the shot clock and all in our own backyard (Rupp Arena).

Aug 31, 17, 11:36 PM #7I had the privilege of hearing Rollie speak at several clinics. He was very entertaining.
One was conducted at the Xavier Fieldhouse, and following the clinic joined Coach M in the coaches lounge. We were allowed that favor since our head coach, Todd Kofler, was the brother of the Xavier trainer.
Those were great times. Many times we shared bar stools with Pete Gillen when he first came to Cincinnati and would have a few beers at Sorrento's in Norwood.
