I just read your article and thought you and/or your readers would be interested in a documentary that I produced in 2007 about college basketball's most storied gymnasium, entitled "The Palestra: Cathedral of Basketball." Lead by the powerful voice over talent of Harry Kalas and interviews with some of college basketball's most venerated characters such as Bill Bradley, Chuck Daly, Dr. Jack Ramsay, John Feinstein and Bill Raftery, this feature-length documentary traces the evolution of college basketball through the rise of this most historic arena. We're currently selling a Special Collector's Edition DVD online at http://www.PalestraDocumentary.com

I strongly encourage fellow Palestra fans, or just college sports fans in general, to check it out!

I also saw that article on espn.com. It was very fun to see the variety in each venue. Your story about the Palestra and your experiences at Penn was very interesting. It is always nice to experience the history first hand; you can only read about something so long with out actually going to it. Your story actually reminded me of Allen Fieldhouse on the University of Kansas campus. I was lucky enough to visit Allen Fieldhouse and although there was no game and the students were out of school it was still nice to experience a place were the game of basketball has been played since the beginning. There were even a lot of venues in our own back yard in the bay area, I especially like how BALCO made the list. Tucker Baksa Cohort29
