Twenty-Fifth Annual National Collegiate Basketball Championships
The program for the 25th Annual Mideast Regional Playoff from the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) Tournament, March 15-16, 1963 at Michigan State University in Lansing, Michigan. The title on the coverart says Midwest and that is a typo. The cover art is a hand drawing of two white men, from opposite teams, playing basketball. The program contains black and white photographs of the four teams, and extra photographs of the coaches and a prominent player, in the Tournament, the Bowling Green Falcons, (Harold Anderson (head coach) and Nate Thurmond (Center)); Illinois Fighting Illini (Harry Combes (head coach) and Dave Downey (Forward)), Loyola Ramblers (George Ireland (head coach) and Jerry Harkness (Captain and Forward)), and Mississippi State Bulldogs (Babe McCarthy (head coach) and Leland Mitchell (Forward)). All of the teams are integrated, except for the Mississippi State Bulldogs. This program is the exact same as the other program, except for the cover art and Coca-Cola advertisement in the center.
