Article on Harold "Ole" Olsen and role in developing NCAA Tournament

Harold Olsen coached Bradley from 1918-19, for just one year. 20 years later he helped develop and coached Ohio State to the championship game. This year marks the 80th season for the NCAA Tournament.

A couple other interesting Bradley footnotes: Bradley beat National Champions handily that season, and opted to participate in the NIT instead of the NCAA. The official for the Championship Game was Lyle Clarno, a Bradley alum and HOFer.
