In the early 90s, when the NBL was soaring to new heights on the back of an influx of star Americans, Dwayne McClain was a household name. But before the “D-Train” became a fan favourite in Australia with the Sydney Kings, he was part of one of the greatest Cinderella stories in US college hoops history. In 1985, as a senior for Villanova, his eighth-seeded Wildcats beat a Georgetown side lead by future Knicks icon Patrick Ewing to take the NCAA Championship. McClain would top score with 17 points. It was the perfect upset and never again has a side seeded so low won the Big Dance. This is our humble tribute to a man who took the NBL into the living rooms of thousands of Australian hoops fans and one with a back story for the ages.
