Here is a newspaper article about rabid's Winter tale!
And your video actually encompasses the shot of which I spoke at the 34 second mark. I love the article, and McGuire was crafty even to the minutest detail. You'll notice the article states that "The bench stands up at the seven second mark, so whoever has the ball doesn't even have to look at the clock." Smart!

And yes, we won 62-60.

You're right. It's exactly what you mentioned earlier!

I couldn't make out what the jersey said to find out if that was Marquette, so I googled it. Sure enough the jerseys matched so I figured that was "The Shot" lol

USC players from the past that I most enjoyed watching play, in no particular order:
Before 1980

John Roche
Tom Owens
John Ribock
Kevin Joyce
Danny Traylor
Tom Riker
Alex English
Nate Davis
Mike Dunleavy
Brian Winters
Ed Peterson
Jackie Gilloon
Kenny Reynolds

Out of that group,

Best rebounder: Owens
Best shooter: Winters and/or Peterson. Peterson was only on the team one year.
Best passer: Probably Gilloon. But he threw some passes his teammates didn't catch.

Here is a front and back copy of the photo of Frank McGuire that was given out free during the 2014 Legends Weekend.

He was a Navy veteran just like me.

Unlike the Marquette game, where my most vivid memory of the game was Winter's winning jump shot, another game that comes to mind during that same '73-'74 season was the Pitt game. Now some of you may look at old box scores and see the final outcome, but many may not realize that the Pitt Panthers were ranked in the Top 10 when they came to town late in the season. I used to keep a record of our wins and losses during the season, and I recently came across my old records from this season. Pitt had a nineteen game winning streak that year and came into Carolina Coliseum with a 19-2 record. They were beating teams pretty badly. Oddly enough, the most vivid memory I have of that game, other than trouncing them by 17 points, was sitting behind one of the backboards, maybe fifteen rows up, flirting with a cute blonde cheerleader. You can see an excerpt of this game from the 1:05-1:15-second mark of doubledribble's Winter's video, though I don't see the the cheerleader anywhere.

There was a thread about this a while back that I found when googling this. I wanted to start this thread so we could have a place to share memories and connect to the past. Do you mind sharing some details?

Ricker and Rebok could have been the best tag team in any fighting sport imagined.. Those two were nasty. Owens wasn't a push over either.
The thing about Coach McQuire and his team depth is you didn't have to really have any depth in those days..No shot clock and very little fast break game. It was pretty much all half court offense.
Freaking Dean Smith would go to the 4 corners half way through the 2nd half..He is the direct cause of my Dad going through at least 2 TVs a year during basketball season...
I have to say my favorite Gamecock basketball player was probably Jackie Galoone..(sp?)..that guy could handle a basketball..

The fight with Maryland referenced above is an example of the intensity of the rivalries at that time. I am surprised I never got an ulcer from the tension of those ACC games back then. It was FAR more exciting than anything since then. Nothing we have now compares to it. Back then, you wanted to win because you were trying to be the best in the ACC, AND trying to beat your opponent. It was personal. Now, we play an SEC game and whoever wins, all the coaches and all the players shake hands and smile at each other and go their ways. No hard feelings. Not so then.

I went to see USC play Clemson at Clemson. I think it was 1969. Saw the JV game first. The crowd was yelling insults at our JVs. I remember some of the New York kids giving the finger to the crowd. Lots of hostility.

In the varsity game, USC was much better than Clemson and beat them soundly. One thing I remember was one of our big men, Owens, or Riker, I think, had the ball holding it up around his head and a Clemson player was on his left reaching for the ball. The USC kid hit the Clemson kid with his elbow, right in the nose. The blood poured and he had to go to the sidelines. I don't remember is there was a foul on the USC player. You can imagine the reaction of the Clemson crowd.

Crazy!

The thing that stands out to me is that McGuire created rivalries with (it seems like) every ACC opponent. I mean we were hated by Maryland, UNC, NC State, and so on...

You're right. Nothing really like that now thanks to PC. I mean McGuire telling Lefty that he must have hit himself... Today we would have outrage and the coach would apologize...
