Praise

“Though focusing on one disgraced coach and his former program, this exposé shows just how wide and deep is the corruption corroding men’s college basketball….It’s ‘a climate of moral rot’ that will exist as long as college basketball generates huge sums of money while those who play the game, often from underprivileged families, are supposed to receive nothing. While the FBI investigation continues to play itself out in court, Sokolove’s welcome context could well influence the court of public opinion.” — Kirkus, starred review

“Using the tarnished legacy of former University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino as an anchor, Sokolove (Drama High) provides a lucid account of large-scale corruption in college basketball . . . a richly detailed, enlightening account of college sports.” –Publishers Weekly
