Going Bigtime: The Spectacular Rise of UMass Basketball documents the extraordinary and rapid ascent of the school's basketball program from among the nation's worst to the Final Four. Going Bigtime also covers the entire sweep of UMass basketball history (which includes the college careers of Julius Erving and Rick Pitino). Going Bigtime also covers a grades scandal, a brilliant but erratic coach, the infamous "John Chaney incident", and a star player taking illegal payments from agents. Also included are profiles of protagonists like National Player of the Year Marcus Camby and Coach John Calipari, as well as many unreported moments and anecdotes from a near-championship season. Going Bigtime is entertaining and engaging reading for all college basketball enthusiasts. -- Midwest Book Review
