Horse Cave Mayor Randall Curry Presents Historic Proclamation

On March 5, 2016 Mayor Randall Curry attended the WKU 1971 Final-Four Team Reunion Luncheon. He presented a proclamation from the city of Horse Cave, Kentucky declaring March 5, 2016 as “Clarence Glover Day”. Mr. Glover is a graduate of Caverna High School and was a starting-forward on that historic Western Kentucky University team.

In 1971 Houston hosted the NCAA Final-Four for their first time ever in the Astrodome. The teams were WKU, Villanova, Kansas, and UCLA. Attendance was over 35,000 people. On April 2, 2016 Houston will host the NCAA Final-Four again…this time in the NRG Stadium.

While watching the games being played in Houston on April 2, 2016 we can keep one thing in mind. The proclamation to Clarence Glover illustrates our city’s connection to the NCAA Final-Four in 1971 and 45 years later in 2016.

Additionally, Western Kentucky University remains the FIRST and ONLY team in NCAA Division I Final-Four history to have the (1) president of the university – Dero Downing, (2) athletic director – Ted Hornback, (3) entire full-time coaching staff – John Oldham, Buck Sydnor, & Jim Richards, and (4) the entire starting line-up – Jim Rose, Rex Bailey, Jim McDaniels, Jerry Dunn, & Clarence Glover - all from the same state-KENTUCKY.
