Best 90-Percent Effort

The first 36 minutes of the UA-Illinois basketball game in the Elite Eight

No longer will what happened to Bugs Moran's boys on St. Valentine's Day of 1929 be known as the biggest massacre in the history of Chicago. Henceforth, it will be what the Fighting Illini did to the University of Arizona men's basketball team during the last few minutes of the quarterfinal round of March Madness. The UA Wildcats had played spectacularly for most of the game and were about to reach the Final Four for the fifth time in Lute Olson's tenure. Heck, with a minute left, the Cats still led by eight. But then, it was bye-bye, lights out, move over, Bugs.
