Texas Western celebrating historic title 50 years later (Yahoo Sports)

Feb 4th 11:00 PM EST.
David Lattin says something happens every day to remind him of Texas Western's historic NCAA championship in 1966, when the Miners won with the first all-black starting lineup in a title game against all-white Kentucky. ''Somebody mentions it or somebody calls and tells me 'Glory Road' is on or something just comes to me,'' the 72-year-old Lattin said Thursday, referring to the movie that was released 10 years ago. Now called UTEP, the unknown school from far West Texas shocked basketball royalty with a 72-65 win in College Park, Maryland, and remains the only Texas team to win an NCAA title.
