The Basketball History's Corner: USA - USSR 1972 FINAL

The Basketball History's Corner:
The 1972 Olympics USA - USSR Basketball FINAL

The 1972 Olympics marked the first time that the United States did not win the gold medal in Olympic basketball since the sport's introduction as an official medal event at the 1936 Summer Olympics.

The gold medal game between the United States and Soviet Union remains very controversial to this day. The Soviets had a 49-48 lead and committed a hard foul on Doug Collins with three seconds left. Collins made two free throws to put the U.S. up 50-49, and the Soviets inbounded the ball quickly. Referee Renaldo Righetto of Brazil stopped play with one second on the clock. USSR coach Vladimir Kondrashkin had attempted to call time out between Collins' free throws and it was awarded.

The inbounds pass was intercepted and the United States players and coaches celebrated their victory. But the head of the FIBA Renato William Jones ordered that the clock be reset to three seconds, the time that was on the clock when Kondrashkin tried to call time. The Soviets inbounded the ball for a third time, and this time, Alexander Belov scored a lay-up and the USSR won the game 51-50, which not only meant that they got the gold medal, but they also dealt the United States their first loss in Olympic basketball competition.

The members of the United States team have remained upset of the outcome of the game ever since. They refused to accept the Olympic silver medal during the medal ceremony, and on an appeal, the five-judge appeal panel had judges from the USSR, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Italy and Romania. The vote was 3-2 to reject the appeal.

Basketball History ~ Great Basketball Moments:
First Basketball Game in History... !

December 21, 1891... 118 Years Ago !

First Basketball  Game Ever
Photograph: Vedia PhotoStream

The first basketball game was played on December 21, 1891 in the YMCA gym in Springfield, Massachusetts, USA, with 2 teams of nine players each.

Mr. Naismith acted as referee and Mr. Stebbins, the school's janitor, stood ready with a ladder to retrieve the ball out of the basket should someone score.

He did not get much exercise, because the final score was 1 - 0. This did not dampen the enthusiasm of the players, who had so much fun that they were hooked on basketball, named because peach baskets had been used for goals.

This is a unique drawing of a japanese student from the school drawn "during that game".

Chapters in the Basketball History:
Richard (Rick) Francis Dennis Barry III

Richard (Rick) Francis Dennis Barry III (born March 28, 1944, in Elizabeth, New Jersey) is a retired American professional basketball player.

Unforgettable Basketball Legends: Rick Francis Dennis Barry III

Rick Barry - 1977
Master of the skill of Making A Freethrow

He is considered by many veteran basketball observers to be one of the greatest pure small forwards of all time as a result of his very precise outside shot, uncanny court vision, knowledge and execution of team defense principles, tenacious and ofttimes demanding will to win, and unorthodox but accurate underhanded "granny shot" free throw shooting.

Barry is one of few elite players who have altered their games without losing effectiveness; he broke into the professional ranks as a rebounder and all-purpose points machine before he morphed into a primary ball distributor and lethal perimeter threat.

Named one of the 50 Greatest Players in history by the NBA in 1996, Barry is the only player to lead the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), ABA and NBA in scoring for an individual season. In 1987, Barry was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Barry also ranks on the short list of greatest underdog players in basketball history, as his teams repeatedly overachieved despite marginal talent around him. Longtime NBA writer Paul Ladewski has referred to him as Ricky Balboa, a reference to Rocky Balboa, the prize fighter of motion picture fame who was at his best in the face of long odds.
