Overview

Coach Tom Crean has brought the storied Indiana University Hoosiers basketball program back to national prominence by taking an unranked team at the beginning of the 2011 season all the way to the 2012 Sweet Sixteen.

Indiana University coach since 2008, the story of Coach Crean's successful rebuilding is of interest to serious college basketball fans and coaches everywhere. The success of last year's team and a top ranked incoming class is sure to gain the keen interest of any Hoosiers fan.

The book opens with The Shot by Christian Watford that beat the Kentucky Wildcats to end Indiana's pre-conference schedule. That victory, over then #1 Kentucky, was the point when Hoosiers fans knew their team was back. A history of the program from the departure of Bob Knight through the difficult years faced by coach Mike Davis and the controversial years that followed under coach Kelvin Sampson follows.

The book continues with complete coverage of the rebuilding of the program by Coach Tom Crean. Readers then get to relive that entire exciting season through its end. Author Terry Hutchens then concludes with a look at the highly rated incoming class and what the next four years hold for the program.
