Texas Western returns to scene of '66 NCAA win over Kentucky

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) The University of Maryland will always be a magical place for members of the 1966 Texas Western basketball team.

That special squad was honored Saturday, nearly 50 years after the Miners - with an all-black starting five - stunned Adolph Rupp's all-white Kentucky team 72-65 to win the NCAA championship.

It was a monumental upset, mainly because of the role it played in tearing down the racial barriers in athletics at universities in the South. It was the first time a team ever started five African-Americans in the NCAA title game.
