Slam Online: Loyola vs. Mississippi State – a historic game

Great article by Rick Telander about a historic and defining game 50 years ago that put all-white Mississippi State up against mixed-race Loyola.  I think there are times when race is thrust into the spotlight today unnecessarily  but his was a time when race was a polarizing topic no matter where you are.

I won’t elaborate anymore because I can’t do it justice.  It’s well written, full of historical impact on many levels, this is a must read.
