1965 NCAA Championship Texas Western vs. Kentucky DVD
In the 1965 NCAA Championship on March 19, 1966, Texas Western College, now known as the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), put an all-black starting five on the floor for the first time in an NCAA basketball championship. That night, the Texas Western Miners, led by coach Don Haskins with star players David Lattin and Bobby Joe Hill, defeated coach Adolph Rupp's #1 ranked all-white Kentucky Wildcats, 72-65. Lattin set the tone early with a thunderous dunk, highlighting the strength of the Miners, while Hill's back-to-back steals showed their quickness. Other key Miners on these 1965 NCAA Championship DVDs include Harry Flourney, Willie Cager, Willie Worsley and Nevil Shed. The Kentucky Wildcats feature Pat Riley, Louis Dampier and Larry Conley, who are also included in this basketball DVD.

It was great to finally get the legendary basketball game on dvd. I'm a Utep alumni and loved finally seeing the actual game for the first time.
