ANNAPOLIS -- When Indiana coach Bob Knight was workin his last season at Army in 1972, he brought his Cadets to Halsey Field House for a basketball confrontation with Navy.Although it was a Saturday afternoon game, lights were still needed in dim, gloomy, cavernous Halsey, and at halftime they went out. The start of the second half was delayed and even after someone found the switch, it took almost 15 minutes for the lights to return to full brightness.Knight fumed, accusing Navy coach Dave Smalley of subterfuge.
