Interesting analysis also about how getting to the point of Jason Richard's last (missed) shot was the triumph itself-more important than
the fact that he missed the shot and their successful run was over. Recommended for coaches, fans, and players who themselves may one day face the chance to make (or miss) that game-winning , last second shot. My only regret is that this book wasn't longer!
You don't have to be a player or a coach to enjoy this book. If you can believe in something greater than yourself, then by the final page you will believe in Davidson, and all of the other "Davidsons" that will grace amateur sports for years to come.
