Brown: History connects College Basketball

My love for college basketball goes beyond a perfectly executed game or a defensive stop.

It’s the story of the game that attracts me, and the fact that many times you do not appreciate what you see until much later.

The best example I can think of happened in the ninth game of Iowa’s 1965-66 season. The Hawkeyes, 8-0 and ranked number four in the country, were beaten by the Texas Western in the final of the Sun Bowl tournament in El Paso, Texas, 86-68.

Iowa went without a field goal for more than 10 minutes in the opening half and was behind by 21 points at the break.
