I also recall Dana reciting the song by Brooke Benton, "Rainy night in Georgia" at our buffet luncheon. For you old timers, when we played our games at Franklin Street, we would be treated to sandwiches at half time in the auxiliary gymn. Now we only get a tootsies roll and a t shirt.I recall us having a long winning streak under Dana and lost to Georgia State in Atlanta. Would someone confirm?
the confusion here is the school changed names from University of Detroit to Detroit Mercy ( most famous U of D basketball player was Dave DeBuschere sp?)Vitale never coached there. He was the coach of the University of Detroit. Smokey Gaines coached Detroit Mercy back then.
