Summary, etc.: What happens when a 6' 9" kid from Lobelville, Tennessee is recruited by legendary basketball coach Bob Knight? Kirk Haston's life was changed forever with just a two-minute phone call. Containing previously unknown Knight stories, anecdotes, and choice quotes, fans will gain an inside look at the notoriously private man and his no-nonsense coaching style. Which past Hoosier basketball greats returned to talk to and practice with current teams? How did Knight mentally challenge his players in practices? How did the players feel when Knight was fired? In this touching and humorous book, Haston shares these answers and more, including his own Hoosier highs shooting a famous three-point winning shot against number one ranked Michigan State and lows losing his mom in a heartbreaking tornado accident. "Days of Knight" is a book every die-hard IU basketball fan will treasure. Publisher's marketing.
