The 1947 championship team posed for a celebratory photo with their trophy.
As the NCAA Final Four approaches, New York Daily News is revisiting historical coverage of some of the “greatest moments at [Madison Square] Garden.” Reporter Ian Powers describes the 1947 Holy Cross men’s basketball team in his piece, “Garden Crusade.”
“Kaftan, a little basketball wunderkind from Queens named Bob Cousy (maybe you heard of him), and a bunch of other New York area and New England kids shocked the basketball world by taking little Jesuit school Holy Cross to the NCAA championship, winning three straight games at Madison Square Garden,” writes Powers. “Basketball in New England would never be the same after that.”
