- We are joined today by someone many college basketball fans have gotten to know over recent years and that’s Loyola Chicago standout Lucas Willamson.
- We’re going to talk with Lucas a bit about his career on the court for the Ramblers, where the Chicago native was a two-time Missouri Valley Conference honoree and the league’s two-time Defensive Player of the Year, but even more about a special project he was involved in off the court.
- Williamson served as the narrator on “The Loyola Project,” a recently released documentary about the 1963 Loyola Ramblers, a team that broke racial barriers while also capturing the national title.
- Williamson will talk with us about his involvement in that project, the process of putting it together, and what he learned about this transformative squad.
