Relive the glory days of one of America's premier men's college basketball programs--the UConn Huskies. From its first moments of regional prominence against Holy Cross in the 1950s to the 2004 NCAA national championship team, this book takes you on a wild ride of New England basketball at its best.

Read about Wes Bialosuknia, the "Poughkeepsie Popper" of 1960s fame, who was perhaps the greatest shooter ever to wear a Husky uniform. Relive UConn's glorious victories over Bill Bradley's Princeton squad and Julius Erving's UMass powerhouse. Then, of course, there's the Jim Calhoun era, which has produced scores of great players, two national championships, and a lifetime of thrilling basketball moments and memories.

These eleven stories are must reading for all Husky fans. They entertain, inspire, and bring back to the spotlight the indomitable spirit and energy that is Huskymania.
