That was insane.
I had forgotten about that but remember it now. I was trying to think of anyone else scoring that much in a tourney game.
Michigan was the defending champs so that made it even more impressive, though Glen Rice had gone to the NBA.
That was the Loyala team that still had Gathers right? It was the next year that he died and Bo Kimble shot the lefty free throws in his honor. Is that correct or did they score the 149 or whatever it was WITHOUT Gathers? Now that I think about it, it almost seems like maybe they did do it without him.
I think the PG on that team was Terrell Lowery who ended up in pro baseball as a pretty high draft pick. I think he made the majors for a short time, with perhaps Texas. Or maybe it was someone else.
Loyala was amazing there for a few years. I remember one game with Oklahoma in the reg season where it was like 154-153 or something crazy like that and 3 or 4 players had either 50 or close to it. Brent Price, Mark's little brother had something like 54.
