“College Basketball’s Purple Reign” is the story of the tiny school that lit up the basketball world. With an enrollment of only 1500 students, the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA shocked the nation winning the NCAA Tournament in 1947. Following up with a second national championship in 1954, the Crusaders cemented themselves in hoops history in the early days of the college game. The era launched the careers of legends like Bob Cousy, Tom Heinsohn, Togo Palazzi and many others, who helped to redefine the game and make it big time.
