Transcript Great Championship Games of the Past By TOM CUSHMAN San Diego Tribune We begin with marital trauma. Having attended her first Final Four in 1976 at Philadelphia, where I then was employed, my wife, Lois, was enchanted by the experience and in the years since has attended whenever arrangements to purchase a ticket could be made. Her streak was interrupted in 1985, at my suggestion. For reasons that time has rendered obscure, I persuaded her that Lexington, Kentucky, — site of that spring's grand climax — would hold little appeal to one of her cosmopolitan bearing (although raised on an Iowa farm, Lois has spent most of the past three decades in areas where population is counted in millions). An undersupply of shopping malls may have been one of the hooks. I do remember telling her that none of the teams in which she had personal interest had a chance of Former trainer Jake Nevin, flocked by Villanova and Kentucky trainers, provided inspiration for the Wildcats' 1985 title. A View from the West reaching Lexington. So, no ticket was sought. And, off I went to a first round site, then to a regional, and — as the panorama unfolded — to a developing sense of discomfort. During 15 years as a reporter and columnist for the Philadelphia Daily News, I was heavily involved with basketball in that city — both at the high school level and, later, the "Big Five." The most extensive contact was with Villanova; for a time I also covered football at that campus and — for all 15 years — the late Jumbo Elliott's superb track teams. My family became friendly with Villanova players, coaches, administrators and their families. During a football road trip to William and Mary, Jim Murray — then sports information director for the Wildcats, later general manager of the Philadelphia Eagles — had a birthday cake for my young son delivered to our dinner table. That Scott's birthday had been celebrated three months earlier was of no consequence; what I assume would be a lifelong attachment was fused on the spot. Now, suddenly, unexpectedly, the 1985 Villanova basketball team was front and center — nationally. Losers of 10 regular- season games and a controversial addition to the championship bracket, the Wildcats upset Dayton first — then Michigan, Maryland and North Carolina. Villanova was going to Lexington. Lois was not. This was not a serene moment in our household. "But, you don't like seeing them lose to Georgetown," I said, attempting to reason while insulated by 2,000 miles. Georgetown — meaner than an Arctic winter — also would be at Lexington. Perhaps I had a poor connection. The conversation is remembered for its lengthy silences. My first Final Four predates Lois' by five seasons. In 1971, I followed a Villanova team that — like its counterpart 14 years later — was very much the underdog as it advanced to Houston through Raleigh, North Carolina, stunning unbeaten (28-0) "Big Five" rival, Pennsylvania, 90-47, in the finals of the East regional. Three of those Villanova starters (Chris Ford, Howard Porter, Tom Ingelsby) would 1985 Championship Site Villanova 66 Georgetown 64 Lexington, Kentucky FG- FT- Villanova FGA FTA REB PF TP Pressley McClain 4-6 5-7 3-4 7-8 4 1 1 3 11 17 Pinckney 5-7 6-7 6 3 16 Wilbur 0-0 0-0 0 0 0 McLain 3-3 2-2 2 2 8 Jensen 5-5 4-5 1 2 14 Plansky Everson 0-0 0-0 0-1 0-0 0 0 1 0 0 0 Team 3 Totals 22-28 FG- 22-27 FT- 17 12 66 Georgetown FGA FTA REB PF TP Martin 4-6 2-2 5 2 10 Williams 5-9 0-2 4 3 10 Ewing Jackson 7-13 4-7 0-0 0-0 5 0 4 4 14 8 Wingate McDonald 8-14 0-1 0-0 0-0 2 0 4 0 16 0 Broadnax 1-2 2-2 1 4 4 Dalton 0-1 2-2 0 1 2 Team 0 Totals 29-53 6-8 17 22 64 Halftime: Villanova 29, Georgetown cials: Clougherty, Dibler, Rutledge ance: 23,419. 28.

Reserve strength was so thin, however, coach Jack Kraft had to commandeer a team manager and a reporter from the school newspaper to have sufficient numbers for scrimmages in the Astrodome. Still, the Wildcats defeated Western Kentucky in the semifinals and extended UCLA — the rubber-stamp champion of those years — before surrendering, 68-62. That winter remains a bittersweet memory on the Villanova campus. Heated competition for talent between the NBA and a newly-minted ABA had brought crawling from the woodwork the first wave of intermediaries, now commonly known as agents. 116
