In the early 1960s, Ohio State basketball was a force.
The Buckeyes were paced by legendary players such as Jerry Lucas, John Havlicek and a young guy named Bob Knight.
Gary Bradds was an exceptional player who flew under the radar as a sophomore. He came up huge in the 1962 title game, scoring 15 points as the Buckeyes came up just short against Cincinnati.
Lucas and Havlicek went on to star in the NBA, and Knight is one of the winningest coaches in college hoops history.
Bradds carved out his place in NCAA championship game lore and used it as a launching pad to two more years as one of the nation's top scorers in 1963 and 1964.
