Basketball Times Article on GOTC 40th Anniversary

Welcome to any visitors who may have discovered this site via the mention in the Basketball Times article on the 40th anniversary of the Game of the Century (upcoming two weeks from today), in the January 2008 issue of the publication.

Written by Editor John Akers, the GOTC retrospective completely fills three of Basketball Times' oversized pages. Most of what's in the article would probably be known to hardcore fans who've read the books written by the principals of the UCLA-Houston game (e.g., Eddie Einhorn, Dick Enberg, and John Wooden).

I did, however, pick up a few tidbits of information that were new to me. For example, I had not known that the University of Houston played a few additional games in the Astrodome in the immediate years after 1968.
