Transcript The Great Eighties Outstanding Teams Dominated The Decade By MIKE LOPRESTI Gannett News Service So where were we, the last time a decade was dawning? A long time ago, 1980. At least in college basketball. When you hit a 20-foot jump shot, you scored two points, of course. If you wanted to hold the ball for four minutes, you could. Domes were considered nice places in which to play baseball and football. But a basketball tournament? Nan. Who would fill the seats? ESPN? What's an ESPN? Big East? What'* a Big East? There was a little-recognized school not far from the banks of the Potomac River just beginning to make noise, with an earnest coach named John Thompson. Somebody back then called Georgetown Cinderella. Imagine that. Cinderella. We found out Cinderella could play a pretty mean pressure defense. Louisville did not have any national championships yet. What Louisville had then was a rap. "Louisville can't win the big ones. Lou- penny Crum of Louisville led the Cardinals to national titles in 1980 and 1986. North Carolina's Dean Smith directed his teams to 10-straight NCAA championship berths in the exciting eighties. isville can't play against zones. Louisville this, Louisville that," guard Jerry Eaves said one day, mimicking the critics of the Cardinals. Soon after, Louisville made its first of four Final Four trips in the decade and won its first of two national championships. Nobody said Louisville could not win the big ones anymore. Dean Smith was still looking for his first national championship at North Carolina. And nobody had yet hit on the idea of naming an arena after him. With the 1990 NCAA championship, college basketball commences a new decade, and it can only hope the one coming will match the one past. It would be hard to better the 1980s. How can you top a decade that had everything? You want great coaches? It had great coaches. Denny Crum, Bob Knight, Smith, Thompson, Mike Krzyzewski, Larry Brown, Guy Lewis. They did not know the meaning of the word rebuild. All they knew how to do was reload. Crum took four Louisville teams to the Final Four and won twice. Knight won twice. Thompson, Krzyzewski, Brown and Lewis each brought three teams to college basketball's big weekend. Brown did it at both UCLA and Kansas. Lute Olson did it at both Iowa and Arizona. You want great stars? It had great stars. Your choice, foreign or domestic. From Michael Jordan to Danny Manning to Patrick Ewing to Ralph Sampson to Akeem Olajuwon. Sampson was Associated Press national player of the year three times. But he never won the national championship, never saw the view from the mountaintop that Jordan and Ewing and Manning saw. Ewing nearly had three titles. His Hoyas lost by one point in the 1982 title game, by two in 1985. Someone once asked him if he had any disappointments in his career at Georgetown. Said Ewing, "I had two." It was not hard to guess what they were. A strange thing about the 1980s, though. Look at the top 15 season scoring averages in NCAA Divison I history. Not one came Championship Coaches of the '80s Seven coaches led their teams to NCAA titles during the 1980s. Denny Crum of Louisville and Bob Knight of Indiana were the only coaches to capture more than one championship. Crum led the Cardinals to NCAA crowns in 1980 and 1986 while Knight directed his Hoosiers to the 1981 and 1987 championships.
