Rebecca Lobo is right, if you love UConn basketball, you'll love this book.
Ryan
Usually it is only a good mystery that can be described as hard to put down, but I loved reading this book and did it all too quickly.
Martha Healy
Don't read this book unless you really want to know moment by moment what happened in a basketball game.

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book for any fan of women's basketball or UConn. Or both. It paints a picture of the superstars that made women's basketball a part of today's sports world. For me, the faint memories of the greats that graced the UConn basketball court all came rushing back in full color. Goldberg gives you more than one game. His writing transports the reader to the glory days of UConn and the formative years of the game for women.

As a newcomer to women's basketball, and of course to UCONN, I loved being immersed in Goldberg's description of what was described as an "instant classic." Usually it is only a good mystery that can be described as hard to put down, but I loved reading this book and did it all too quickly. I felt a part of the team, the game and the time. It was a great read!

I just got this book today and I haven't put it down. This book does the game and the season justice. Goldberg does an excellent job telling an amazing story. I have not finished this book and I will provide a more comprehensive review later but if you love basketball you'll love this book. Rebecca Lobo is right, if you love UConn basketball, you'll love this book.

This was a classic book. Although it ostensibly was to cover one great game, the real subject was the emergence of women's college basketball as a relevant sport in the U S.
It also analyzed the incredible UConn phenomena, and the part that played in drawing fans to the game.
Incredibly well researched and well written.
