    Is San Francisco a Catholic school ? If so, they are # 7. ( and Duquesne has never won) Some kid named Russell played for SF. 55 and 56 winners.

      Forgot about Holy Cross. Only USF comes to mind as a possible one.

        I think LaSalle's winning team(s) had Tom Gola, which would have been '50's, rather than '40's.

            Believe 54 was their year, and only 54.

                Catholic 7

                dukehjsteve is correct- USF's Homeless Dons were the seventh. Few people get that one, or realize the school's Catholic. And not a whole lot of "fans" name Loyola of Chic.

                Holy Cross is so far back, a lot of people only get four colleges correct.

                  He did, but he was only a freshman and was not a significant part of their success. As noted above, the tournament MVP was his teammate George Kaftan, who also played in the NBA for a while after he left Holy Cross.

                    Well, the Heels are on track. Tomorrow's game should be a good one. If they show up, they should win.

                      The best part of this year's MM is absence of Billy Packer.

                        Speaking of Madness, the local newspaper has been tracking the private jet of an Arizona booster that flew Xavier coach Sean Miller out to New Mexico for a meeting with Arizona brass, and is due back around 6:30. Slow newsday I guess.

                        This is a pretty cool little tool though.

                        Interesting that the flight is circling around the south end of a serious band of weather due in town around the same time of the plane. Has already spawned tornado warnings locally.

                          No doubt left by the Heels. A bit of an ugly second half, probably one of the more boring title games if you weren't a UNC fan.

                            I was there, and it didn't seem they (heel fans) were to excited either. The only time they made any real noise was the big dunk right before halftime and near the end of the game. Otherwise 90% of the noise came from the State fans. So, it was alot quieter then the State-UConn game.

                            I also got to meet two Olympians at the games. It was very fitting for them to be at the Final Four, as the number four is the elite status for their event. Both were in the Beijing Olympics. Anyone care to guess who I meet? or do you need more clues? They live and train near Detroit but neither are Americans.

                              IIRC, Willis and Brannen went to Michigan.
