NCAAM Basketball – Special – 50 Years Of Final Fours – 1939 To 1989


This 23 minute video was presented on CBS in 1989 with Host Jim Nance….who still today in 2016 is involved with CBS Sports coverage of the NCAAM Final Four telecast…..as he provides the viewing audience with a walk down memory lane for all fans of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament….known today as March Madness or Bracketoology…..as he covers the Final Fours from 1939 to 1989….from Hank Iba and Adolph Rupp to Jim Valvano and Rollie Massimino….with highlights of the great players like Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robertson, Bill Walton, Lew Alcindor and Jerry West….just to name a few.

Any way you cut the pie….this video is a rare “nugget of gold” in our treasurechest of “video memories” here at Imasportsphile…for it provides an inside look at how March Madness has become a sports phenomena in America today….and a video that is worth watching over and over again.
