Today in Sports History: March 30

By Jonah Sharf

On March 30, 1965, Bill Bradley of Princeton set what was then an NCAA record in a win over Wichita State, helping him win the NCAA Final Four Most Outstanding Player Award that year. Bradley would go on to a successful 10-year NBA career with the New York Knicks, helping them to two NBA Titles. Bradley’s number 24 was retired by the Knicks, and he was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1983. Bradley would go on to serve as a three-term US Senator from New Jersey.
