It was back in the 1970s, a decade that saw Manhattan College basketball flourish while playing before packed houses at Madison Square Garden and earn three straight trips to the National Invitational Tournament (NIT). It was a time when the NIT was college basketball’s most prestigious postseason tournament and Manhattan was the talk of the town in college basketball.
It was also the time when “a guy from the neighborhood,” all 6-9 and 235 pounds of him, stood in the in the middle of all that success and hoopla in Riverdale. That guy is Bill Campion.

Campion, Bill [MC1975]
