NICE READ

I learned a lot as a basketball fan. I appreciated the behind the scenes reality of the NCAA tourney. my beef with the author is there are TWO final fours. What about the women? I realize the men have a deeper history, but the women put on a show. Can we ever get recognized? How about at least a footnote in the book?

Fun read! Great for basketball "junkies" or anyone with even a modest interest in the game. Well written, with great side stories and "look backs".
