Event Description: "The City Game" tells the thrilling and heartbreaking story of the CCNY Beavers, who in 1950 became the only team ever to win the NIT and NCAA basketball tournaments in the same year. CCNY was known for intellectual prowess, not athletic achievement. Moreover, every single player as well as the Coach was either Jewish or African-American. In 1951, the team's five starting players were arrested for conspiring with gamblers to "shave points." They were expelled from college and banned from the NBA for life. Matthew Goodman is the New York Times bestselling author of four books of non-fiction. He tells a complicated story: of scapegoats, corruption and how at least one other college managed to escape a shared scandal unscathed.
