Lenny, Lefty, and the Chancellor: The Len Bias Tragedy and the Search for Reform in Big-time College Basketball
Len Bias, one of the most celebrated college basketball players of his time, died at the age of 21 of a cocaine overdose. Was it just drugs, or did a faulty system contribute to his death? Baltimore Sun reporter C. Fraser Smith presents a well-written and thoroughly investigated account of the Len Bias tragedy, exposing the inside world of big-time college sports and the "forgotten" athlete. (Bancroft Press)

This is less about Len Bias's playing career at Maryland and more about the circumstances of his passing and the apparent academic cover-ups that were happening during his tenure there. In other words, it's more exposé than sports writing (there isn't too much about Bias's on-court prowess). It's successful for what it is, but don't go into it expecting much basketball content.
