This is a book that I wrote and published about the basketball team at Rio Grande College in Ohio that I was coach of in the early fifties. This was a very small school that went on to win against large division one schools. On the team was one Bevo Francis that holds the one game scoring record of 113 points. ESPN is currently doing a documentary that will air in March on the team and Rio Grande College. Disney Films has also purchased the rights to make a film about the team but the date of filming has yet to be announced. I cuurently have four thousand copies of the book available and can print more if necessary.
