The Palestra: Cathedral of Basketball

2007 Rated NR 1hr

Take a journey through the history of college basketball via the University of Pennsylvania's storied Palestra gymnasium, an architectural innovation in 1927 (no interior columns obstruct the view) that nurtured college hoops for decades. Archival footage and interviews with top sports figures such as Bill Bradley and Chuck Daly recount how collegiate basketball finally outgrew its roots and left the stately Palestra behind.
