re: Worst showing as a team in the Final 4?(Posted by Zamoro10 on 3/7/13 at 11:52 am to sms151t)
Houston - 1968
(Houston beat UCLA earlier in the year in the game of the century - although Kareem had a scratched cornea) and then lost in the Final Four remach by 31 points...101-69 in the no shot clock era!) As Bill Walton would say, terrible.
Are you admiring the fact that the LSU squad was basically a group of guys who probably did play a lot of AAU ball together? Impressive a relatively sparsely populated area produced a team like that in basketball.
