NEW YORK (AP) -Madison Square Garden will conduct a season-long celebration of 75 years of college basketball by selecting the 10 top moments in the building's storied history.
The list of nominated moments was released Tuesday and the order of the top 10 as selected by a panel including sports writers, broadcasters, coaches and officials will be revealed during games at the Garden in November and December. The first of the moments will announced Thursday night during the semifinals of the 2K Sports Classic.
The top three moments will be revealed Dec. 9 during the SEC-Big East Invitational.
