As the NCAA tournament started and MSU celebrated victory on the court this week, March 15 also marked the 60th anniversary of the “Game of Change,” considered one of the most important sporting events of the civil rights movement. During the second round of the 1963 NCAA University Division 1 basketball tournament, the Mississippi State Bulldogs went against rules that prohibited them from playing against integrated teams and came to Jenison Fieldhouse to play against the Loyola Ramblers, forever changing the landscape of collegiate basketball.
