Summary, etc.:
"Indiana basketball shines in this compilation of William H. “Gus” Moorhead's engaging stories written during his 14-year career with Ripley Publishing Company newspapers. In conversational style, Gus shares about his journey as a boy falling in love with the round-ball sport, to his endeavors as an accomplished player, fiery coach, and lifetime friend of the game. Dive into Ripley County and Madison, Indiana basketball history, visiting sites like Tyson Auditorium in Versailles and Brown Gymnasium in Madison. Meet famous figures including Hoosier legends “The Big O” Oscar Robertson, Paul D. “Tony” Hinkle, John Wooden, and Bobby Knight; as well as local legends like Madison's coach Ray Eddy, Madison player Andy Taff, and Versailles pharmacist Alan F. Smith. The Ol' Coach reminisces upon the 1954 Milan Miracle through the eyes of a rival, and he remembers the Versailles Pumpkin Show as a newcomer to town. This is “Hoosier Hysteria” at its peak. Old-time fans, current coaches and players, and all Hoosier-hearted people who appreciate the wisdom and values embodied through sport will enjoy this insightful collection. -- From the back cover"
