I would have to agree with the Wisconsin game. Was that really all the way back in '96? :eek: Am I thinking of the same one as you? Was that the year they went to the final 4?

The ISU v NIU with Doug Collins was rocking. When I sat down people told me to look at my ticket!! We never did that back in 1970 we just sat down and rocked the house. The office attendence wasn't even close to the number of people in the house. Bradley was the best talent at NIU. Kenny Battle games were great with his 360s on break aways.

My best Chick Evans memory was some of my friends and I got to sit in that couch on the sideline of the court and eat free pizza. Good times were had by all.

Jan 1986 Kenny Battle vs Ron Harper. The place was packed. We won in OT. Great game all the way around.

The Wisconsin game that we won, was in 1999. December 23rd to be exact, final score NIU 55 Wisconsin 51 (the power of having a media guide close at hand). Wisconsin did indeed go to the final four that year. My favorite memory was the Depaul game in 1991. Evans was totally packed and we won 70-61. Both teams ended up making the NCAA tournament that year, and if we both would have one are first round matches we would have met in the second round.

Men: January 1991 70-61 sellout win over DePaul. David Booth might be the laziest visiting player Chick ever hosted. I thought Joey Meyer was going to have a heart attack as much as he was berating the officials. The Gulf War began the next night. We folowed up with a sellout loss to Green Bay, which ranks #2.

Women: March 1992 77-71 overtime NCAA first round win over sixth seed and perrenial power Louisiana Tech. Although the Huskies were the eleventh seed, the game was played in DeKalb because LT didn't fax their host form to the NCAA.

I remember the game in 1991 when Tony Bennett and Wis.-Green Bay showed up and beat us. I can't remember the score but freakin' Bennett was unbelievable. He mustav scored 40. I was thoroughly impressed with that little besterd.
One of the best individual performances I've seen.
Then there was a game in 1993 or 1994 when Valpo had these two 7-foot Ukrainians. They whooped us good.

DePaul '91 was tops. Those Green Bay games with the Bennett boys were something else.

Not a Chick Evans game, but the midwest regional at Dayton vs St Johns was up there, too.

Funny looking at the media guide, I don't see a home loss to Valpo.

1990-91 NIU 79 Valpo 55
1991-92 NIU 77 Valpo 66
1992-93 NIU 73 Valpo 65
1993-94 NIU 69 Valpo 63

Although they did beat us a couple of times away and on in the M-CC tourney (1993).

favorite ever was somewhere around 78 or 79. DePaul (aguire, cummings, grubbs) NIU, packed house (standing room only), and freshman Terry Green has an amazing tip in slam dunk with 5 seconds left to send the game to overtime. That was by far the loudest I ever heard at a sporting event. We were sitting right under the basket where Green made the dunk. Friends who were watching the game on WGN said the camera was shaking on the screen because of the noise. NIU lost on OT though.

Two others:

NIU vs. Ohio 1984 in first round of MAC Tourney. NIU down 13 with about 7 mins to play, but won anyway.

The Indiana game in '72, Bob Knight's first year at Indiana. I was nine and I got Fritz Peterson's autograph before the game, on one of those roster sheets they used to give out at Chick Evans (in the days before they started selling programs).

The DePaul team that beat NIU in overtime that night (on a horrible foul called against Jay Bryant of NIU with no time left on the clock; Mark Aguirre sank both free throws for a 2 point Depaul win) was ranked number one in the nation the entire year, until UCLA upset them in the 1st round of the tourney. The tip dunk by Green was unbelievable as he took off from what appeared to be the free throw line to dunk the missed shot to tie the game in regualtion.

By the way the Ohio game was in 1982. NIU followed that victory up with two wins against Bowling Green and Ball State to win its only MAC tournament championship and adavnce to its fiorst ever NCAA tournament with a 16-13 record.

The 91 NIU v. Depaul game by far. It was packed, it was sooo loud in there. We were up by 20, Depaul slowly climbed back then the huskie closed the door. I cannot recall who it was but somebody on the huskie had an awsome alley-oop dunk. Place went absoluetly nuts.

I remember getting home and watching Jim Rose from channel 7 reporting from chick evans that NIU and not depaul was the top team in chicago and that NIU was the team to go to the tournament. As it turned out, both went.

Runner up is the 96 Wisc. game. Great upset, but it was during break. Game was not a sellout and NIU in general that year was very average.

My favorite games were women's games. Fastbreak Fest against NC State. Andrea Stinson was the best basketball player in the field house the four years I was there. She made a baseline lay-up that my mates and I all just went into shock over. Then she caught an NIU player that was alone on a breakaway and ran around her to steal the ball and head up the court the other way. The NIU player had about a 15 foot head start. It was like watching a cartoon.

The other was an NIU-DePaul game. I think the place was nearly sold out. We all stood to whole game under the Section "F" sign in the verbal abuse section. If those signs are still there I'd like to get that one. Lot's of memories.

Any game with Kenny Battle was exciting. What a tragic loss for the program when he transfered.
