'57 title game is a classic

Lennie Rosenbluth slouches in a booth near the back of the diner, his championship ring twinkling. His eyes blaze as 1957 comes to life once more. Memories spill from his thick New York accent. He remembers the silence, the way the crowd in Kansas City sat stunned after UNC beat Kansas 54-53 in triple overtime for the 1957 NCAA basketball title. It was one of the greatest college games ever, and the memory never grows old. (Orlando Sentinel)
