Branch

Many Indiana University fans have heard the name Branch McCracken, after whom the hallowed court at Assembly Hall is named, but how many of them know about the legendary coach himself? Before Tom Crean, before Bob Knight, IU basketball relied on this man to make the school famous for its hoops stars. And boy did he--with two national titles, four Big Ten titles, and numerous other accolades, McCracken defined Hoosier Hysteria for a generation. However, his greatest legacy remains the example of good character he set and the way he touched the lives of everyone around him. Fans remember him as the coach who helped IU break the color barrier in Big Ten basketball, and players remember him as a second father. If, as McCracken once wrote, "A coach is not paid in money or winning teams, but in the men his players become," he was a rich man, indeed. Branch McCracken made Indiana University basketball a force to be reckoned with, and this is his story.

The Basketball Love Story Of Choc Lit And Max

The Basketball Love Story Of Choc Lit And Max

This is a semi-fiction, true fantasy of the saga of two basketball players, a boy and a girl named Shelton and Maxwell. The book is based on the visual exploits of a fantastic player called Chuckie, whom I had the pleasure of watching play for five years. He was placed on the varsity squad in the eighth grade because of his ability to jump and shoot. I don’t remember if he was first string in the eighth grade or not. Chuckie is actually Choc in the book.

The Southern Textile Basketball Tournament

The Southern Textile Basketball Tournament

In 1905 Lawrence Peter Hollis went to Springfield, Massachusetts, before beginning his job as the secretary of the YMCA at Monaghan Mill in Greenville, South Carolina. While there, he met James Naismith, the inventor of basketball, and learned of the fledgling game. Armed with Dr. Naismith's rules of the game and a basketball he bought in New York, Hollis returned to the mill and changed the face of athletics in South Carolina. Lawrence Peter Hollis was one of the first to introduce basketball south of the Mason-Dixon line, and the game quickly gained popularity in the textile mill villages throughout South Carolina. In 1921 Hollis and others organized a tournament to determine the best mill team, and thus the southern Textile Basketball Tournament was born. Over the years, some of the south's top cage talent played in the tourney, including "Smokey" Barbare, Lucille Foster Thomas, Bert Hill, Earl Wooten, Billy Cunningham, Pete Maravich, Sue Vickers and Tree Rollins. Decade-by-decade, the history of one of the longest running basketball tournaments is provided, along with profiles of many prominent participants. Full rosters for all teams in all tournaments are given in the appendices, along with all-tournament selections and members of the Southern Textile Athletic Hall of Fame.

Soaring Like An Eagle The Courtney Moses Story

Soaring Like An Eagle The Courtney Moses Story

Courtney Moses was always about basketball, from an early age playing AAU ball, up and through grade school. In the 7th grade, the high school coaches saw a girl with skills and moves that far out did other girls her own age. What would possess a little girl from Sweetser, Indiana to dream about one day being Indiana Miss. Basketball. Could it be that she was destined to become the greatest player in all of Oak Hill basketball history? Or was all this just chance? Being at the right place at the right time. Courtney will tell you she knew from an early age she was going to be someone special with the basketball. But as fate would have it, God had given her a gift to play, and become one of the best, on and off the court. Now the only question was, will she do what it takes to become the best, or will she just do what is needed? Her story is an inspiration to all, but her story is to all those young girls who were told they can't, because they are too small, or too short, or because they are a girl. Her answer is a simple one, yes you can.

Point Guard

Point Guard

Gus and Cassie have always been on the same team off the field, but in this third novel in New York Times bestselling author Mike Lupica’s Home Team series can they stay friends when they’re on the same court? Everyone assumes that Gus, whose family is from the Dominican Republic, is a baseball guy. But this year Gus is even more excited about basketball than any other sport he’s ever played. He’s been practicing some new moves and lately he’s more surprised when he misses his shot than when he scores. Plus now that he’s convinced his friend Teddy to try out for the team and Jack’s shoulder is healed, it looks like Walton’s home team will be unstoppable. But this isn’t going to be the season Gus expected, because their team is getting a new player—and she just happens to be one of his best friends. Gus knows Cassie is more than good enough to compete on the boys’ team, and besides they really do need a point guard, so why isn’t he able to shake the feeling that she belongs on their bleachers rather than their bench? And to make matters worse, with their center Steve Kerrigan constantly making comments about his Dominican heritage, and Steve’s dad voicing his views on immigration as he runs for office, Gus is starting to wonder if he really belongs in Walton after all. Can Gus find a way to bring the home team together both on and off the court, or will all these prejudices block their shot at a winning season?
