Guardians of the game - Inside look on College Basketball

I just finished reading Guardians of the Game "A Legacy of Leadership".

Dr. Naismith invented the game but it was the man from Kansas, Phog Allen who was behind coaching it. The book profiles the games greatest coaches & highlights their incredible impact on college basketball. Phog Allen, John Wooden, Big House Gaines, Dean Smith, Bobby Knight and Coach K are a few of the names you might recognize but there were so many others who influenced the game and this book tells you all about it.

In Guardians of the Game, you can read the real story behind the rules committee decision to outlaw the "Dunk" & how the NABC saved the dribble and kept it part of the game.

There are so many great stories in this book, If you are a fan of college basketball, Guardians of the Game is must read -
