On March 23rd 1960, Loyola University (Chicago) won the school’s only NCAA basketball championship. The Ramblers faced an all-white Mississippi State in the regional semifinal, and despite protests from the governor and state police of Mississippi, the game went ahead as planned. Loyola beat Mississippi State and went on to the championship game, in which Loyola started four black players and Cincinnati started three, the first time that a majority of African-Americans participated in the NCAA championship game.

Pay Homage to the Ramblers historic feat with our exclusive Loyola 1963 Champs Box Set, which includes a commemorative t-shirt, poster, and DVD. Get it here!
