In Longshot: The Story of the Buchan Bakers, authors Robin Buchan and Bruce Kitts bring to life a forgotten era of basketball in America. Longshot tells the story of a team of homegrown heroes from the Pacific Northwest who dared to compete with the biggest programs in amateur basketball. Against all odds, the Bakers from Seattle defeated the legendary Phillips Oilers for the National AAU Championship in 1956, earning its place among the elite of amateur basketball. This book follows the Buchan Bakers from the team's beginnings, the championship season, goodwill tours through Asia and behind the Iron Curtain, and entry into the National Industrial Basketball League.
