Since we are playing Marquette, here is sorta funny story.

Tom Riker played when Freshmen were ineligible. He was supposed to be a big star as a Sophomore big man but was largely missing in action for the first few games.

We started out ranked #1 and dropped to #3 after an early loss, then had a big national TV match-up with #2 Marquette. Sunday game, McGuire versus McGuire, coach versus former player.

Riker spent the night before consuming large amounts of alcohol and dancing solo to "Layla" over and over at a local watering hole. He kept playing it on the jukebox and had some nice moves on the dance floor. He was finally carried out in the wee hours by two very large bouncers.

Riker came out on fire and dominated the early minutes of the game. The announcer made the comment that Riker had really prepared himself for the game - in reality, I think his blood alcohol level was still high enough that he finally started playing loose.

Then he promptly got into a fight with Marquette Forward Bob "the Black Swan" Lacey, and both were thrown out of the game. We seemed to have more fights than an average hockey game back then. And Marquette won the game.

Good times.

My freshman year 66-67, all the games were played in the old Field House. It was a great place to watch a game. I remember when we played Clemson, their football coach, Frank Howard, walked all the way around the gym to sit in the student section behind the Carolina bench, getting booed the whole way. Of course when he sat down, the Carolina students got up and moved. My favorite game that year was when North Carolina came to Columbia and we beat them 70 - 57. I believe they eventually lost to John Wooden, Lou Alcindor and UCLA in the national finals that year. We had Jack Thompson, Skip Harlicka, Frank Standard, Lyn Burkholder, and Gary Gregor as the 5 starters and Al Salvatori as the 6th man. Lou Bella was one of the refs and stopped the game once when Dean Smith complained about fans flashing lights behind one of the baskets when his players were shooting foul shots. He took Coach McGuire to that end of yhe court to talk to the fans and the place got so quite you could hear McGuire say as they walked down there, "But Lou, these are my people." Needless to say, the place went crazy!

Really glad to see great basketball times coming back to Carolina!
