63. Penn's magical year

The 1979 tournament will forever be remembered for two names -- "Magic" and "Bird" -- but another incredible story developed. The Penn Quakers won their eighth Ivy League title in 10 years and entered the tournament as a 9-seed. Then they did this: beat No. 8 Iona 73-69; beat No. 1 North Carolina 72-71; beat No. 4 Syracuse 84-76; beat No. 10 St. John's 64-62. That earned the Quakers a trip to the Final Four, and while Magic and Michigan State would have their way with Penn, it marked a historic run in school history and was a victory for Ivies everywhere. -- Teddy Mitrosilis
