City Game

About this Blog

Just read a new book,City Game by M.Goodman.Anybody old enough to remember the BB point shaving in the 1950’s it is a must read.It centers on CCNY great teams of that era and the point shaving they did.It also brings in the politics of NYC and the extreme racism that existed then in the game. It ties in how BB in the Catskills in the summer introduces fixers to players. Something I knew was brought out.St.Johns a top national team at that time was left alone while 5 other NY teams had players involved.It turned out the then arch Bishop of NY,Cardinal Spellman went to DA Frank Hogan and told him to leave them out of it.Before President Kennedy he was the #1 most powerful Catholic in the US. In the 49-50 season CCNY won the NIT and NCAA.At that time the NIT was a bigger tournament.
