Hoosiers among March Madness 75th anniversary candidates

4 comments by   |   Tuesday, December 11, 2012 - 6:34 pm EDT

As part of the celebration of the 75th anniversary of March Madness, the NCAA has released lists of the top players, teams and moments for fans to vote on. The winners will be honored at the Final Four in Atlanta.

Fan voting starts in early January at NCAA.com/MarchMadness (where you can currently see the candidates) and will cut the list of 75 players to 15, and the 25 teams and 35 moments to one each.

Indiana is well-represented on all counts. Among the players, Hoosier candidates are: Keith Smart, Isiah Thomas, Kent Benson, Scott May and Steve Alford. Also of note, Scott May’s son, Bloomington North grad Sean May of North Carolina, is also on the list.

Among the team candidates are the 1975-76 Hoosiers with their 32-0 record.

And the moments include: “1976: Indiana wins the title — perfectly,” and “1987: Indiana’s Smart shocks Syracuse.”

Speaking of March Madness and the 75 years. We’re still working on that Alford to Keith Smart 1987 play poster from Prinstant Replays. Should be out soon and I may have a few free to give away to the Scoop faithful.

Harvard for Hillbillies, they took your Bryce Drew recommendation and created a “Pacer” poster. Titled of course after the name of the play that resulted in that miracle of a shot.

Please, PB, make sure that poster is not an Alford to Smart likeness, it was Darryl Thomas to Smart for the winning shot.

PB – I would love one!

Right now I have an old framed picture of The Shot that I had signed by Keith and Alford.

Would love a new, larger version.

Yes, Thomas to Smart. Believe we are going off the You Tube clip here.

I may have a couple depending on how many Hunter sends me. Clarion, Geoff and Harvard get first dibs.

Merry Early Christmas!
