Does anyone besides me remember the Caterpillar team playing Gonzaga in the Fieldhouse back when Cat used to played small colleges before their Industrial league games started? We used to go to the Bradley game on Saturday and the Cat game on Sunday. Always free admission for Cat games.

Chico, you amaze me - you must be a lot older than me...

I don't remember that but Cat did play in industrial leagues and other amateur competition well into the late 1950's, and I even have a few of their old game programs and yearbooks.

Here's a story on Gonzaga basketball that actually talks about exactly what you describe...

"Gonzaga .. basketball team had a good post-war run, but that was on
the small-college level and the campus fathers seemed perfectly content
playing a provincial schedule.

By his second year, Anderson opened the season with a midwest trip to
DePaul, Illinois State and AAU powerhouse Peoria Caterpillar, which won the
Olympic Trials in 1952."

Yeah, I think I might be older than most on here. I was in the Fieldhouse before it had a court. I saw BU games at the Armory and Woodruff.

Just curious.... hasn't there been 3 different channels for the same game in the past? One for each teams fans and then one "neutral. Maybe I am wrong, but I have found only one for tonight's game.

They have done that for football but I don't remember it for the basketball game, that has been an ESPN thing.

LOL - that's right! Thanks Fetz. Guess it doesn't really matter - I mute the tv for almost all games I watch anyway.

They implied that Higgins was to blame for Kentucky's loss o North carolina in the NCAA Tournament, and they revealed personal information about Higgins and his private business leading irate Kentucky fans threatening him and his family, and intentionally trying to cause harm to his business.

I think he has a pretty good case.
