Nash Dies

Monroe Nash, the sixth man on the 1971 USC men’s basketball team that was arguably the best team in school history died on Monday of a heart attack in San Diego. He was 61.
Not many people realize today how good the 1971 team was. It went 24-2 and only lost to national champion UCLA. The Trojans were ranked No. 1 in the nation at mid-year and finished ranked fifth.
Under the system of the time, USC could not go to the NCAA Tournament because only the conference champion was allowed.
