    Rematch of Historic NCAA tourney game....

    Between Miss. St.-Loyola of Chicago taking place Saturday night. I don't post on here often, but as some of you may know my grandfather Babe McCarthy was the original coach of the New Orleans Buccanears of the ABA. For those that don't know, he was also the head coach at Mississippi State from 1956-1965. In 1963 his MSU team played an historic NCAA Tourney Game against Loyola of Chicago and tomorrow night the two teams will meet for the first time to mark the 50th anniversay of the game played March 15th 1963. Me, my dad and my brother will be in attendence at the game in Chicago. Attached is a story ESPN has done leading up to the game. Sporting news just recently voted the '63 as the most significant moment in NCAA Tournament history.
