  1. “Big House” should be separated. Betting this picture is from the 1967 CIAA Tournament in Greensboro. Marshall Emery played for my dad in the 1950s and was the coach of Howard University in 1967. Howard made it to the finals that year and lost to North Carolina A&T, 76-73. Emery is holding up a trophy that honors him as the most outstanding coach of the CIAA tournament in 1967. My father is holding up a trophy that honors him as the CIAA Coach of the Year in 1967. 1966-67 season was the year the Rams went 31-1 and won the NCAA College Division Championship.
