UCLA -- their first championship in 1964, back when high scoring games in both college and the pro's was more the norm than today?

UNLV - rogue coach and rogue program.

Then again, John Wooden had posthumously-indicted LA construction magnate/UCLA booster Sam Gilbert helping put him and his program over the top all those years.

Tarkanian was universally vilified (except in Vegas) while Wooden was practically canonized as a saint.

That  was the Anthony, Augman,  Johnson, team.  Anderson Hunt left early. 

Tarkanian  really  stooped low wen  he coached Fresno st. Recruited criminals.  Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry

Yes--only player  of note as I recall  was  Ed  Ratleff--a very  small  bit of  NBA--like  John Warren on Knicks

I remember Ed. Especially, being a high school player with a huge reputation, the questions about why and how he ended up at a school like Long Beach State. He was the type of player UCLA recruited, not a Long Beach. Whatever ... set Tark off on his path to fame.

Booker scored  70   Phoenix.   Who  are  other  6?  Some  very  obvious--like  the guy who did it  a  few times--a couple are  hard--not that obvious. Grin Grin Grin Grin

I'm more of a college than NBA fan. Actually, I would not have known to answer "Booker."  I know Wilt did it a number of times and I'm sure Baylor did it at least once. Beyond those two, I'd be guessing.  One guess would be Kobe.

Wilt--7-8 times.

Kobe  81.

Baylor  71.

hint--each has  David as  1st name.

Think Booker is  #6.  Not 7.

Good job Joe

David's not helping me (though when I see the answer I'll be kicking myself I'm sure). Jordan, Bird and West didn't ever get 70? Surprising, they were all such prolific scorers.

Ok--Thompson  and  Robinson.   Thompson--skywalker--a failure.Rob  more  understandable.

Wouldn't have guessed right if you gave me a year. Especially surprised Robinson did it. I don't think of him as THAT prolific a scorer. He was very economical with his shots usually. Played a great all-round game.

I recall  Rob  scored 70  in last  game of year--maybe to  set  some team or personal  record.

Drugs did in Thompson.  But NC  St  did knock  off  Woodens UCLA  around  1974.

One of my favorite teams was Jacksonville University when they went all the way to the finals. (1971) Lost to UCLA.. Artis Gilmore was like 7'2 " and Pembroke Burrows 7'. Burrows later became a member of the Florida Highway Patrol.

I actually saw DT play in the old Cole Field House at the U of Maryland, against the Terps.  He could jump out of the gym, as the saying goes. (Cole, btw, was where the 1966 Natl Championship game between all-black Texas Western and all white Kentucky was played).

43, Cole Field House was also the site of that Jax-UCLA game in 1970. Sidney Wicks, Curtis Rowe and Henry Bibby were too athletic for Jax. Gilmore went on to a nice NBA career though.

Isn't  it Pembrook  Burrows  III  ?   They  got killed  by  UCLA  with  Steve Patterson  at  Center.   He is the answer to  the trivia ??--who was between  Kareem  and  Walton?

When Lefty Driesell arrived at Maryland in 1969 he vowed to make Maryland the "UCLA of the East." Never happened. I saw a Maryland-UCLA game at Cole in maybe '74? John Lucas was Maryland's star with Dave Meyers leading the Bruins. UCLA won a close game.

Driesell thought he had a shot because, at that time, he had the best facility in college basketball, the 17,000 seat Cole Field House. That was a huge on-campus arena for those days. (Still pretty big for these days although Maryland now plays in a 20,000 seater.) That's why they hosted Regional Finals or Championship games so frequently back in the 60s and early 70s.

Dave  Meyers --RIP--   one  of  4 Lakers  traded  for  Kareem.   (Others  Winters,  Bridgman,  and Elmore Smith)Lukas  liked   drugs  too much.

Ann (sp?) Meyers, UCLA women's star, was his sister, right?

Bizarrely,  Don was  briefly  a color  man for  LA  RAMS.

Monday  took his place.  Also Snider  did a bit  of  90s  cable games.
