In fact, the championship will be awarded every year beginning in 2007 because the seasons will be taken as overlapping. Winning the 2007 Boston Marathon, for example, will count both toward the 2007 championship and the 2008 championship.

1966 'Glory Road' Miners to visit White House

The Texas Western team had five black starters, but you don't have to have an all-black starting lineup to "break the color barrier." The 1950 CCNY team that won both the NCAA and NIT tournaments had three black players, two of them starters. And that's just basketball. The article says "college athletics," which is absurd. The first black All-American football player was William H. Lewis, who played for Harvard in 1892 and 1893. And he had previously played for Amherst. If he didn't break the color barrier in college athletics, I don't know who did.
