Five NCAA basketball championships and eight trips to the Final Four establish Indiana's basketball credentials; this book adds excitement to the mix. Hoop Tales: Indiana Hoosiers Men's Basketball recounts the glory years of the Branch McCracken and Bobby Knight dynasties, including the Hoosiers' unprecedented 32-0 1976 season. Slam-dunk fun.
