Full-court pressure : a year in Kentucky basketball by Rick Pitino( Book )

3 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rick Pitino's impact on the sport of basketball has been nothing short of resounding. Over the course of his meteoric career, this charismatic, outspoken, and at times controversial coach provided the inspiration that helped turn failing programs into winning ones at Boston and Providence, and that worked its magic with the New York Knicks. Now, Pitino has helped bring Kentucky back after two years of ignominy under NCAA sanctions - and this is the book that tells how he did it." "Full-Court Pressure offers a rare, eye-opening chance to see Pitino up-close, personal, and in action. We see him putting the 'Cats through their paces, and putting his own experiences in college and pro basketball in frank and fascinating perspective. For the first time, he discusses his real reasons for leaving the Knicks. He talks about the adjustment of moving from New York City to Lexington, Kentucky, and how he managed to motivate a team that was in the doldrums after being prohibited from the playoffs and appearing on televised games for two years. He shows us the 1991-92 season, game by game, exhilarating win by heartbreaking loss, including losing to LSU, and beating Indiana at the Hoosier Dome. He candidly discusses other coaches, from Bobby Knight to Dale Brown to Pat Riley to Wimp Sanderson, and players from Michael Jordan to Patrick Ewing to Shaquille O'Neal. And he devotes an entire chapter to the game that's already being called "one of the best college basketball games in history," the game in which, until the last two seconds, it looked as if Kentucky would beat Duke and Christian Laettner and make it to the Final Four." "All eyes are on Rick Pitino and the Kentucky Wildcats this fall - and Full-Court Pressure is the perfect book for basketball fans who are anticipating the new season with Pitino and his C̀ats."--Jacket

Refuse to lose by John Calipari( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As one of the hottest coaches in basketball, John Calipari transformed the UMass Minutemen into a #1-ranked force to be reckoned with - taking them to the Final Four for the first time in history. Calipari did more than develop a phenomenal team. He built an outstanding program for success. But it did not happen overnight. Refuse to Lose chronicles this American success story." "When John Calipari arrived at UMass in 1988, the odds were stacked against him. He was twenty-nine years old with no head coaching experience. The university looked down on campus sports. Morale was at an all-time low. But Calipari never said never and rose to the challenge. His winning philosophy? Develop a "Refuse to Lose" attitude. Though you play to win whatever the score, how you play the game counts. Stay within the rules. Don't blame others, take responsibility yourself. Review the tape and learn from it. These are the life skills he taught his players - and they yielded amazing results: a twenty-six game winning streak, twenty-five appearances on national television last season, and America's hard-won respect for the team." "Refreshingly candid, Calipari takes us behind the hoop dreams and into the very heart and soul of the game. He discusses his amazing athletic program that took eight years to build; highlights the glory and scandal surrounding star center Marcus Camby; reveals the truth about the infamous feud with Temple coach John Chaney and all-out "global" warfare with The Boston Globe; and explains his move to the New Jersey Nets and what he hopes to - and probably will - accomplish."--Jacket

4 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It's been over thirty years since Mike Krzyzewski became the head basketball coach at Duke University. And on November 15, 2011, Coach K became the most successful coach in NCAA Division I men's basketball history with his 903rd victory. Now the impact and inspiration of this living legend is captured in this newly revised edition of True Blue. In this one-of-a-kind volume, Dick?Hoops? Weiss brings together over twenty of the friends, colleagues, and players who know Coach K best. From the reminiscences of Tom Butters, the A.D. who hired him, to the analysis of ESPN legend Dick Vitale, who covers the ACC on a regular basis, this book provides unparalleled, intimate insights into the Krzyzewski era at Duke. Players like Johnny Dawkins, Danny Ferry, Christian Laettner, Grant Hill, Shane Battier, and more all recall how they were recruited, played for The Captain, and emerged from their years at Duke as men prepared to take their places in the world. True Blue isn't just a chronology of wins and losses. It is a portrait of a complex man who conceived and executed a simple plan: to make Duke basketball and himself the best they can be. 25 black-and-white photographs
