READ ALL ABOUT IT!! North Carolina Beats Kansas University in 1957 NCAA Finals--TRIPLE OT!!!
I just finished reading, "The Best Game Ever" (How Frank McGuire's '57 Tar Heels beat Wilt and Revolutionized College Basketball). It was a wonderful read and I recommend it. BUT then.... I'm a sucker for sport books with understated titles. Looking around my office I see;
- The Greatest Game Ever Played ('86 Mets/Astros)
- The Perfect Game ('85 Villanova/Georgetown)
- The Greatest Year in Sports (1941)
- The Last Great Game ('92 Duke/Kentucky)
- The Horse God Built (Secretariat)
- When It Was Just a Game ('67 Packers/Chiefs)
- Game Six ('75 Reds/Red Sox)
- The Last Nine Innings (2001 Diamondbacks/Yankees)
- One Pitch Away ('86 League Championships/World Series)
- The Best Game Ever ('58 Colts/Giants)
- The Worst Call Ever (umpires, refs and officials)
In my mind these are all 1st Round Draft Choices.
HistoryKC.com loves that the just completed '57 Tar Heels/Wilt book weaves in Kansas City, Dean Smith, Wilt, Phog, Municipal Auditorium, Iowa State, Max Falkenstein, The Big Seven Holiday Tournament, Gene Elstun, Roy Williams and Allen Fieldhouse.
