Discuss The City Game: Triumph, Scandal and a Legendary Basketball Team with author Matthew Goodman.   
 
His book tells the story of the 1950-'51 City College of New York basketball team. The only team ever to win the NIT and NCAA basketball tournaments in the same year. Made up of either Jewish or African American players; the coach was also Jewish. The year after winning both tournaments, the team's five starting players were arrested for conspiring with gamblers to 'shave points.'
