An unwritten rule barred the white-only universities in Mississippi from playing against integrated teams…


By virtue of their SEC titles in ’59, ’61 and ’62, Mississippi State University received invitations to play in the NCAA tournament each year for the men’s collegiate basketball championship. Each time, the invitation was declined. Until March, 1963. What followed was a story of courage, political intrigue and danger in the depths of the Jim Crow south. This is the story of the 1963 Mississippi State University basketball team and their historic game of change against Loyola (IL).
