A lively, compact history of the important players, astonishing games, and rich traditions of the University of Maryland men's basketball program, this book includes candid observations from coaches, players, officials, and fans. "There is no one more qualified to be your tour guide through any kind of history of Maryland basketball, whether it focuses on last season or twenty-five seasons ago, than Johnny Holliday. Not only has he been there all those years, but he really does know all the people who have been a part of the ups and the downs the program has gone through, not just the coaches but the players, the doctors, trainers, (and) heck, even the reporters who have covered the team."
-- From the Foreword by John Feinstein
