Loyola wasn't the only Chicago team to win a championship that year. Led by Bradley great Joe Allen, Carver defeated Centralia and All-Stater Herb Williams 53-52 on little Anthony Smedley's steal and jumper from the deep corner with 7 seconds to play to win the State Championship. Assembly Hall opened that year.

Stories I've heard: I heard Cazzie russell was on that carver team. I heard they lost to springfield Griffin that year. I heard the loyola ncaa championship game wasn't televised because it was preempted by the boys high school championship game.

Where did you hear all this? :D
This is imported Italian nylon and it's a special edition limited silk print and it was done by this really famous design artist.

It’s amazing how good teams got in the early and mid 60’s when they started adding black players.

Cazzie Russell played on the '62 team. They lost the championship game 50-48 to Decatur on a bogus foul call 30 ft. from the ball as Decatur was holding for the last shot; resulting in 2 game-winning FTs with 6 seconds remaining.

This entire game and the 4th qtr. of the Carver-Centralia game are posted on youtube. The IHSA has posted hundreds of other championship games in every sport on youtube.

I have the memory (possibly flawed) that the Carver game and the Loyola game were telecast on different channels at about the same time. As soon as the Carver game ended, I switched over and caught the end of regulation and OT.

In addition to Ed Jucker at Cincinnatti, Bradley, first under Chuck Orsborn and then Joe Stowell, also led the way in recruiting African-American players. Chet Walker, Bobby Joe Mason, LaVerne Tart, Joe Strawder, Joe Allen, Al Smith (Manual) are some that I recall.

A game in which Loyola simply cant keep up the pace. It will be difficult down the stretch, but hoping for a Ramblers win!

I remember that bogus call.... it was Pollard :)
So I was in the airport the other day and I saw AL B., PM me if you want more details.
