Hey Butch, that scenario would never take place today. Kansas was #4 in the country and beat us 78-77 in the Regional semis in Lawrence. Of course we hosted a very good New Mexico State team led by Sam Lacey at Hofheinz in the Preregional game against the loudest crowd ever in Hofheinz. The concourse was at least 2-3 deep all the way around.
We beat the Notre Dame team that ended UCLA’s winning streak in the consolation in Poo’s last game where he outplayed Austin Carr.
As you also well know, the Final Four was played at the Astrodome that year. We had already beat Villanova, one of the Final Four participants, earlier in the year. We were oh so close.
BTW, how did that team lose to West Texas late in the season?
