DC ballplayers and teams are known for stopping famous winning streaks. DeMatha and Power Memorial (who had won 71 straight) in ’65. Adrian Dantley and Notre Dame beating UCLA’s Walton Gang (88 straight) in ’74. In this gem, Mackin’s Donald Williams leads the Fighting Irish over a streaking San Francisco Dons team starring All-American Bill Cartwright:
If that isn’t enough- when UCLA began its NCAA record 88-game run, they were coming off a 1971 loss to a Notre Dame squad led by D.C. high school products Austin Carr (Mackin, who scored 48 in the nationally-televised tilt) and Collis Jones (St. John’s).
Beat that, New York!
