Is this Ken from Atlanta? Hope you're well, we miss our ATL days!
Ken, very interesting article. I don't think I've read an article
from you before. Good stuff! Few of us were around during those
days. We know BYU won two titles in the NIT when that was considered the very
big tournament. However, I know by about the time this championship was won,
the NCAA tournament was starting to be considered the bigger tournament. Is
that correct and did BYU consider that 60's championship to be a national
championship? I assume it did by things I've read/seen, but wanted to ask
someone who was around then.
The interesting thing is that BYU and St Joes (both in the top 20) went to the
NIT so I would think that the NIT was still considered the national championship
at this time.
