Summary
"The Legends Club is a sports book that captures an era in American sport and culture, documenting the inside view of a decade of absolutely incredible competition. Feinstein pulls back the curtain on the recruiting wars, the intensely personal competition that wasn't always friendly, the enormous pressure and national stakes, and the battle for the very soul of college basketball allegiance in a hot-bed area. Getting to the roots of the NCAA goliath that is followed religiously by millions of fans today, Feinstein uses his unprecedented access to all three coaches to paint a portrait only he could conjure."--Provided by publisher
Summary
In 1980, a legendary rivalry was heating up between three schools in NCAA basketball’s Atlantic Coast Conference, all just a few miles apart. When this rousing history begins, two of the three coaches -- now all household names -- were just starting out: Duke’s unknown new coach Mike Krzyzewski hadn’t earned his moniker (Coach K), while Jim Valvano at NC State was, likewise, a brand-new hire. Only UNC-Chapel Hill’s Dean Smith was well-established, but he still hadn't won a national championship. In this engaging book, longtime sportswriter John Feinstein uses extensive interviews to paint a picture of the rivalries and relationships -- both on and off the court -- between the three men over the ensuing years. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
