Guardians of the Game: A Legacy of Leadership by James E. Krause

Phog Allen, John Wooden, John Thompson, Dean Smith and Mike Krzyzewski. Legends in college basketball. Men whose stories help chart the fascinating tale of what's become a huge industry. Using the history of the National Association of Basketball Coaches as a backbone, Guardians of the Game traces the development of college basketball using the words and deeds of those who have lived the experience - the coaches, players, sportswriters and executives - while offering an inside look at such stories as the UCLA dynasty, the trailblazers such as John McLendon and the always interesting Bob Knight. A necessity of every basketball coach and sports fan, Guardians of the Game brings to life the heroes and the villains of the developmental process and the coaches who have helped create such an intriguing history.
