In March 1950, 70 years ago this month, City College made college basketball history by winning both the NIT and NCAA championships. But CCNY’s season of glory was followed by unimaginable disgrace: a point-shaving scandal that led to the arrests of seven players, traumatized the college, shook the city and forever changed college basketball. In The City Game, Matthew Goodman tells the dramatic story–a tale of post-war New York, of City College in its prime and of imperfect young heroes who paid dearly for their mistake.
