Basketball Warfare -written by Kevin McNamara
Three schools – Boston College, Miami and Virginia Tech – had followed the allure of bigger money and exposure on the gridiron and jumped to the rival Atlantic Coast Conference. The move left the Big East bloodied and bruised. Forced to juggle its lineup, the conference grew to 16 schools and formed a basketball Goliath featuring giant names like Connecticut, Louisville, Syracuse and Villanova. BASKETBALL WARFARE tells the story not only of the 2006 season in the new Big East but also explores a league full of history and intrigue. With stars like Rudy Gay, Gerry McNamara and Randy Foye following in the footsteps of Patrick Ewing, Carmelo Anthony and Emeka Okafor, the Big East is not only alive but is hailed as the best basketball conference in the country. This book captures the star players, Hall of Fame coaches and the drama and intensity of college basketball at the highest level.
