Ramblers: Loyola Chicago 1963 - The Team that Changed the Color of College Basketball

Michael Lenehan

Ramblers: Loyola Chicago 1963 - The Team that Changed the Color of College Basketball by Michael LenehanToday basketball is played “above the rim" by athletes of all backgrounds and colors. But 50 years ago it was a floor-bound game, and the opportunities it offered for African-Americans were severely limited.

Ramblers is an entertaining, detail-rich look back at the unlikely...
