Rising Above the Madness
Profiles of the Greatest NCAA Basketball Coaches of All Time
By Laura Amato

The Big Dance. Where legends are made.

Every March, there are Cinderella stories, buzzer-beating prayers, unbelievable upsets, amazing championship runs and general sports madness. Then it all happens again the next March. The players change, the schools changes, the champions change. But year after year, the legendary coaches remain.

These are the leaders who define the traditions and excellence of NCAA basketball. They are bigger than the game on the court. They take young players who are fresh out of high school and mold them into men. Then mold those individuals into a team. Then turn teams into champions.

Rising Above the Madness examines all aspect of these successful coaches, from their personal background and start in basketball to recaps of their greatest games and championship teams. The book features ten profiles of the most well-known names in college basketball including Mike Krzyzewski (Duke), Lou Carnesecca (St. John’s), the legendary John Wooden (UCLA), and many more.

Perfect for any NCAA college grad or basketball fanatic, this ultimate collection offers a look into some of the best minds the hoops world has ever seen.
