Product Description

Details

The 1972 United States men's Olympic basketball team represented the United States at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, Germany. Led by Tom Henderson and Dwight Jones, the team would go on to win the Silver medal. In the final game of the Olympics Team USA would lose its first game ever and end a 63-game winning streak (The streak began in the 1936 Summer Olympics).

The final game came down to the final minute. After Team USA took a 49-48 lead against the USSR team, they would come storming back. Doug Collins (USA member) would hit two clutch free throws after being fouled with three seconds left in the game. After Collins hit his free throws, the Soviets failed to score and team USA would win 50-49. However, one referee apparently whistled play to stop with a second remaining in regulation after hearing the earlier horn and seeing an error at the scores table. The play would then be done over again; yet again the Soviets would fail to score. However, the Secretary General of FIBA would order the clock to be reset again at three seconds. This time the Soviets would score. The U.S.would file a protest, but it would get denied. Team USA then refused their Silver medals.
