Runtime USA:15 min
Plot Features the games of the 1950 NIT (National Invitational Tournament), played in Madison Square Garden when it was still the primary prestige college-basketball tournament. CCNY (City College of New York) was the eventual winner---so sue me, it's in the newspapers---and this short shows game highlights of Kentucky beating Bradley; CCNY over San Francisco; Syracuse outlasting Long Island University and St. John's over Duquense; CCNY beating Bradley in the second round, while Ohio State does the same to Holy Cross, and North Carolina State beats Baylor University. A historical piece of sports history in that it preceded the exposure of most of the New York City teams whose players were taking bribes from NYC gamblers and Mafia-figures to point-shave their games...playing badly enough to win the game by fewer points than the odds-maker had set for them. So, there is a crook or two in this footage that would be exposed later in the biggest scandal to ever hit college basketball.... search for Basketball Headliners of 1950 on IMDb
