Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

From golf and football to tennis, basketball, and baseball, John Feinstein's incisive you-are-there portraits of players, coaches, and their games have set a new standard for sportswriting -- and become major national bestsellers.With A March to Madness Feinstein returns to the arena of his most successful book, A Season on the Brink -- and takes us inside college basketball's toughest league, the Atlantic Coast Conference, or ACC. This group of nine colleges is renowned for its championship teams -- one or more are almost always among the NCAA final four -- as well as for the top pros it has produced, including Michael Jordan, Grant Hill, and Kenny Anderson, to name just a few.Focusing on the personalities, the strategies, and the struggles of the conference's superlative coaches, Feinstein brings to life the dramatic 1996-97 season. With superstar Tim Duncan leading Wake Forest to unexpected heights and traditional favorite Duke benefiting from controversial victories, interest in the ACC has never been greater -- and Feinstein has never been more incisive. Taking us onto the courts and into the locker rooms, he gives us a vivid portrait of each team and each coach, revealing the rivalries and the friendships, the pressures and the joys, the victories and the defeats. Here is college basketball at its most exciting -- and John Feinstein at his best.

Rezension:

In terms of work ethic, John Feinstein is the sports equivalent of Stephen King: he's tireless, prolific, and multifaceted. With a past-performance line that includes A Season on the Brink, A Good Walk Spoiled, and A Civil War, he's regularly in the running for his genre's MVP. A March to Madness, which chronicles the 1996-97 Atlantic Coast Conference's ineluctable journey to March Madness, continues his string. Exhaustively reported, and penned with as much poignancy as panache, it's the story of the most competitive college basketball conference in the U.S., filtered through the eyes--and complex lives--of its head coaches. Coaching young in-your-faces is never easy; it's even harder in a pressure cooker such as the ACC, where expectations are enormous, winning is essential, and an NCAA tournament bid is requisite for survival. Feinstein had remarkable access to his high-profile, high-strung subjects, such as Dean Smith, Bobby Cremins, and Mike Krzyzewski, and the drama he records is every bit as fast-paced and stunning as a close Duke-North Carolina game with the final seconds ticking off the clock.
