University of San Francisco Don’s Ranked #1 (29-0) Lose to Notre Dame Fighting Irish

As a St. Patty’s Day reminder, the luck of the Irish can happen anywhere anytime. The year 1977, the USF Don’s mens basketball team. The Dons were ranked #1 in the country and riding high with future NBA star center Bill Cartwright and first round draft picks Winford Boynes and James “Trouble” Hardy.

The Dons were 29-0 with Bob Gaillard at the helm. But as luck would have it, Irish luck that is, the Dons walked into a hornets nest of an atmosphere. A mysterious hotel glitch with no heat in rooms, horrible food, and a bus ride that was interrupted by a breakdown adds to the “Red” Auerbach like “accidents” that helped contribute to the Don’s downfall.
