When it comes down to basketball, it is hard not to think of Hall of Famer David “Big Daddy D” Lattin! Inducted into both the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and Texas Black Sports Hall of Fame in 2007 for his part in winning the NCAA championship on March 19, 1966 with the Texas Western Miners. This victory was a monumental victory that changed the way America thinks of basketball.
This victory was forever enshrined in 2006 in the film Glory Road. And with David Lattin’s book Slam Dunk to Glory, you can experience the events of the 1966 NCAA championship through Big Daddy D’s first-hand experience.
