Happy 40th anniversary, Marquette

posted by Drew Olson -

On this date in 1977, Marquette University defeated North Carolina for the national championship in Al McGuire's final game as head coach. 

Other than the Brewers' pennant-clinching victory in 1982, we haven't seen such a triumphal celebration for a Milwaukee-based team since.

I'd say we're overdue... 

I'd also say, "Happy Anniversary," to all my favorite "Warriors" fans. Enjoy the day and enjoy these photos from that year's Final Four festivities. If you have 90 minutes and want to re-live the excitement of the championship game at the Omni, click here. You'll thank me later.
