The 1965–66 Texas Western Miners basketball team represented Texas Western University, now known as the University of Texas at El Paso and was coached by Hall of Fame coach Don Haskins. The team made history by winning the 1966 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament in 1966, becoming the first team with an all-black starting line-up to win an NCAA basketball national championship; a feat that was not favorable by many. The Miners defeated Kentucky (a team that was all white until 1969) 72-65 in the historic championship game, played at Cole Field House in College Park, Maryland on March 19, 1966. The team was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2007[1] and inspired the book and film Glory Road.
