This cool tee is a keepsake that celebrates the Indiana Hoosiers' men's basketball team and their championship victory during the 1981 NCAA Division I Basketball Tournament. The shirt even features the final score of the winning game, which was 63 to 50 against the North Caroline Tar Heels at The Spectrum arena in Philadelphia.

The tournament's finals were almost canceled, as earlier that day there had been an attempt on President Ronald Reagan's life. Once news broke that Reagan would survive the assassination attempt however, the game proceeded as scheduled.

This was Indiana's fourth National Championship, and the last time they had earned the national title was also the last time that the finals had been held in Philadelphia back in 1976. Both titles had been earned under the leadership of head coach Bob Knight. Most Outstanding Player for the tournament was awarded to the Hoosiers' Isiah Thomas, who was later drafted to the NBA second overall pick by the Detroit Pistons.

Fits like a modern unisex adult small. This shirt is distressed. It is very soft and thin with several holes and runs, see pics.
