Definitely was there . I was in the 9th grade at the time but my Dad was great friends with the late great gentleman Donald Ray Kennard who was an academic advisor for the athletes, spotter for the Tiger Football games radio broadcast and representative to the Louisiana Legislature for the Central area. All that to say that tickets were extremely hard to come by and he got My Dad and I two tickets. Never pulled so hard for Bama in my life because could not stand Indiana and Bobby Knight at the time. If I remember correctly Bama finally made a run in the 2nd half and I want to say cut Indiana's lead down to 3 or 4, the Assembly Center at that time erupted with much cheering . Second game that night was so so although a close game between WMU and Marquette with Marquette winning a close one I think. The Saturday game was a great game once again with Indiana pulling away at the end . Al MaGuire received a technical foul either sometimes in the first half or early in the 2nd half. Greatm game and I actually think Indy was ranked #1 and Marquette #2. Pretty sure next year the NCAA started seeding the teams. Anyway thanks for the memories and three games that rank as some of my best besides the many LSU Basketball games I attended throughout all my years.
