About this title

Synopsis:

Recounts the precipitous change of fortune for the members of the 1978 Duke University basketball team, whose winning season was expected to carry them to NBA stardom until their careers were derailed

From Publishers Weekly:

The author of A Season on the Brink and A Season Inside here turns his talents to composing a basketball version of The Boys of Summer , based on the Duke team of 1977-1978, which lost the NCAA championship to Kentucky. The team was unusual in that most of the players were freshmen and sophomores, with only one senior on the squad; further, they all played the sport for the fun of it, developing a wonderful sense of camaraderie as they did so. A decade later, their coach is at Northwestern, having survived a heart attack; one of the assistant coaches is head coach at Rutgers; another has left coaching. Of the players, three are lawyers, two are in the computer business, one is a minister and one is a star in the NBA, while some of the others have had professional and medical problems. Granted the dubious premise that this almost-winning team is a reasonable subject for a book, this is a good study of boys becoming men. BOMC alternate.
