I recall us having a long winning streak under Dana and lost to Georgia State in Atlanta. Would someone confirm?
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.

Vitale never coached there. He was the coach of the University of Detroit. Smokey Gaines coached Detroit Mercy back then.
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?)
Vitlale was the coach there for 4 years - (all of the players on the NIT team VCU lost to were Vitale recruits - Vitale coached the team the prior 4 years before VCU played them) At the time VCU played them, Vitale was the school AD
three of the players played in the NBA , Deurod, Tyler, John Long
