Marquette basketball honors Maurice Lucas’ 1973-74 national team

What a special night honoring and celebrating Maurice Lucas' Marquette basketball team that competed in the 1974 NCAA championship game. Both David Lucas and Maurice Lucas II were there in attendance to celebrate the 50th anniversary of that special game and honor their dad’s legacy.

"Honored to attend the 50th anniversary celebration of the 1974 NCAA championship game with Marquette University! They rolled out the red carpet and flew the whole team and their families out to the Marquette vs Xavier game to celebrate and honor the team. What an incredible legacy my father has left behind. I could not be more proud of his hard work and his many accomplishments. It was also great to have my brother Maurice Lucas II join me for this memorable event, spending time together and reminiscing about our dad’s amazing journey! 💛 Rocking my pops 1974 letterman’s jacket!"
