“B” for Basketball


In 1988, the MTSU Blue Raiders defeated the Soviet National team in an epic basketball showdown with a final score of 105-95 in overtime. Adding fuel to the fire, the Soviet National team had won the Olympic gold medal in Seoul, Korea that same year. The sweatshirt featured above commemorated the team’s win over their Soviet competitor. The MTSU newspaper Sidelines provided a play-by-play of the game.
