Yep,1979,Undefeated Indiana State lead by Larry Bird vs Arkansas lead by Sidney Moncrief for a trip to the final four.Arkansas had been the previous year with the Triplets.Brewer and Delph had graduated.

Game tied with little to play when Arkansas' U.S. Reed was dribbling around half court to set up a play and was tripped and lost control of the ball.He went and picked it up and was called for traveling.

Indiana State got the ball and somehow a big dude on their team jacks up some off balanced left handed once in a lifetime shot that somehow goes in.We lose 73-71.

The refs screwed us,Indiana State cheated and there was home cookin to get Bird and Magic to that championship game.

Somehow I still believe Florida had a hand in this.
