I stumbled upon the replay of this game yesterday on CSTV. Even though I have it on tape, I probably watched more of it yesterday than I have since I saw the real thing 14 years ago. In my opinion, it's the third best college basketball game I've ever seen, right behind Duke-UK 92 and Houston-Louisville 83. The pace was amazing and Chris Jackson was truly tremendous. I know everyone pretty much agrees how great he was, but as time goes on, you don't remember everything the guy could do. I don't think I've seen a better college basketball player since. I loved the way Loyola played as well. If Gathers had not died tragically, they had the talent to win it all. Believe they got to the Final 8 without him. I still don't understand what happened with Jackson in the NBA. (National Anthem antics aside) He had some decent seasons, but he should been incredible. I wonder if his physical problems had anything to do with it. I seem to remember his medication causing him to gain a lot of weight. Don't know if that was a factor or not. Nevertheless, if you get a chance, check out one of the old tapes from 1988-1990 and watch it from start to finish. I was shaking my head the whole time.
