Don Chaney talks with Lenny Moon about “Game of the Century” in 1968

Former NBA Coach of the Year (1991) Don Chaney talked with Lenny Moon about his participation in one of the most significant college basketball games ever, that transpired in 1968. Chaney’s second ranked Houston Cougars hosted defending national champions and top ranked UClA before a record crowd and a rare national televison audience for that era. The game featured the two future hall of famers in Lew Alcindor (aka Kareem Jabbar) of the Bruins and Elvin Hayes of the Cougars. Many credited this contest as a prelude for what we know recognize as the “March Madness”.
