    1940 NCAA Final: Indiana v Kansas

    Monday, 15 March 2010 16:17
    Don't adjust your sets, you read it right. This is footage from the NCAA Final Four of 1940! Indiana took the title from Kansas (15 years before Wilt Chamberlain joined them), with a 60-42 victory. Here are some features of the 1940 tournament, which was a long way from the March Madness we experience today

    The wifi cost that year was outrageous.

    I remember Virginia Tech being quite angry after being the first team out despite a record of 8-7 with quality wins over the Blacksburg YMCA and the Alexandria Kiwanis Club.

    Bring back jump balls at the free throw line.

    Great clip ... among the cool things about it:

    1. No lame corporate logos on the floor (unless that weird arrow across the lane means something)

    2. Even with the underhand technique, they still missed a ton of free throws. Just like today!

    3. The photographers sat right on the sideline. Everybody else was pushed back.

    No one had to worry about the three second rule. The lane is so tiny it looks like a sidewalk!

    I love the glowing nuclear spill at center court. I also love the fact it looks like the lines are chalked onto the floor.

    Or jump balls near the sideline (around the 3 minute mark).

    One guy nailed a set-shot from from would be beyond the NBA three-point line. And another guy hurled a pass underhanded the length of the court, but it went out of bounds.
