Transcript On his way to 1985 most outstanding player honors, Villanova's Ed Pinckey played tough defense on Georgetown's Patrick Ewing. factor against Villanova. Out in San Diego, my wife declined an invitation from relatives to join them for the telecast of the championship game. This was a time for watching alone. At California, where my son was a junior in the engineering school, the day crept along on turtle legs. Many hours of Scott's youth had been spent inside Philadelphia's Palestra. Many months later, newspaper accounts of that contest still were taped to the ceiling above his bed inside a Berkeley apartment. In Lexington, it seemed everywhere I turned I was shaking hands with a friend from Philadelphia. One was Jake Nevin, Villanova's revered trainer, whose losing battle with Lou Gehrig's disease had underscored the Wildcats' season with a broad stroke of melancholy. Even had there been no special interest involved, it still would be the finest basketball game I have seen played. To win, Villanova would need to control the tempo and execute flawlessly. How well the Wildcats did both is revealed by the statistics. Shooting 54.7 percent from the field, Georgetown lost. Attempting only 28 shots, Villanova made 22 for an NCAA-record 78.6 percent. Advancing the ball against the Hoyas' stifling pressure defense, point guard McLain had two turnovers. Needing a dose of perimeter accuracy to reduce the inside pressure, Massimino brought Harold Jensen off the bench. Jensen sank all six of his attempts. Neither team managed a margin of more than six points. Ahead 29-28 at halftime, Villanova took the lead forever on Jensen's field goal with 2:35 remaining. When a Harold Pressley free throw made the score 66-62 with 0:10 left, Jensen walked to the end of the bench where Nevin was seated in a wheel chair and planted a kiss on Nevin's bald head. The night had begun with Georgetown fans waving a banner that said, "It's midnight Cinderella." Midnight arrived, and Cinderella danced on. There would be heartache in the months ahead. In a celebrated magazine report, McLain confessed to drug use during that championship season. Massimino agonized for days over a lucrative offer to move to the New Jersey Nets before deciding to remain where he was. Nevin died. "But, you don't like seeing them (Villanova) lose to Georgetown." Tom Cushman San Diego Tribune During a conversation a year later, Massimino insisted he had watched a tape of the title game once. Why? "I'm still afraid we'll lose," Rollie said. $ 119
