DonRocks Posted July 3, 2017 Share Posted July 3, 2017 There are a couple things I didn't know about Indiana State's Men's basketball program: * They've played in the NCAA since 1896, making them the oldest program in the nation along with Bucknell, Minnesota, and Washington (who knew?!) * The legendary 1978-1979 team almost wasn't quite so legendary: Against New Mexico State (and remember, there was no 3-point shot then), they were behind 83-81 with 3 seconds remaining, and New Mexico State was at the free-throw line! The shooter missed, Brad Miley got the rebound, and passed to Bob Heaton, who heaved a desperation, 50-foot bank-shot in at the buzzer. Indiana State won the game in overtime.
