Remember the 1966 Texas Western Miners. They were the first all-black team to take all the marbles in the NCAA Tournament in 1966. Led by Williw Worsley, David “Big Daddy” Latin and Bobby Joe Hill, the Miners beat Adolph Rupp’s Kentucky Wildcats, known as Rupp’s Runts. Hill led Texas with 20 points and Pat Riley and Louie Dampier bucketed 19 each in a losing effort.
