The March 1947 edition of the SPORT Magazine featured one of college basketball's most controversial figures, Alex Groza of the Kentucky Wildcats. Groza dominated college basketball in leading Kentucky to back to back NCAA Men's Basketball Championships in 1948 and 1949 and was named a three-time All-American. After winning Rookie of the Year and being named an All-Star in his first two seasons in the NBA, Groza and two of his Wildcats' teammates would be implicated in a point-shaving scandal that happened during the 1948-49 season at Kentucky. Groza and his teammates would be banned from the NBA for life.

SPORT Magazine, which ran from 1946 to 2000, celebrated what its editors accurately anticipated would be the coming explosion of interest in professional and amateur sport in post-war North America.
