December 29, 1934 - First college basketball game in MSG

Between St. John's and the Big East, it's quite common to see college basketball games being played in Madison Square Garden. That was not always the situation. Today, in the first game of a double header Notre Dame took on New York University. In a game not featuring the offenses, NYU defeated Notre Dame 25-18. The second game of the day featured Westminster over St. Johns 37-33.
