An elaborate collection of the greatest Indiana high school basketball stories - newly updated! It is often said that while Dr. James Naismith invented basketball in Massachusetts, the sport was raised and ultimately came of age in the high schools of Indiana, the state where politics, religion, and sweet corn fall in line behind the game played with the round orange ball. Tales from Indiana High School Basketball, now newly revised, centers on those special people who have played the game - their stories, their passion, their drive for excellence, their laughs, and their tears. This is a book about Lebanon schoolboy hero Rick Mount, the first prep basketball player ever featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated; it’s about Gene Cato, the Indiana High School Athletic Association’s former commissioner whose father - his high school coach - would not put the young scoring phenomenon into a game until his team’s fans demanded it; it’s also about Marion’s “Purple Reign” - consecutive state championships in 1985, 1986, and 1987 when the Giants were the most important game on every opponent’s schedule. John Wooden, Bobby Plump, Steve Alford, Damon Bailey - it’s as easy for an Indiana high school basketball fan to roll the names off the tongue as it is to find the broadcast of a high school game on AM radio on any Friday night during an Indiana winter. Tales from Indiana High School Basketball is not so much about statistics and winning streaks as it is about the personalities and emotions of those who created a phenomenon that became a way of life in the Hoosier State. 1.

In the history of mankind, sports occupy a central place in defining the era and cultures of a particular time period. In ancient times, several sports sprouted up that still exist. The Olympic Games have been with us for the last three millennia. In fact, nearly every sport we see today has had some kind of old connection. Soccer is a medieval-era sport, cricket was invented during Victorian times, baseball was invented after the civil war in America, and golf has possible Roman origins. Considering the importance of all sorts of sports that have existed since antiquity, one such game that deserves our attention is none other than basketball. Basketball can be easily compared with its contemporary sport of soccer in regards to its following in the international arena, and the nature of the game, which is very similar to football. And yet, basketball remains one of the most overlooked sports in our modern times, in spite of its huge following. Official data suggests that no fewer than 250 million people play basketball every day across five continents. If that wasn't enough then the official data by NBA and its partners nearly doubles that figure if thousands of schools, colleges and institutes that hold their own championships are included. Basketball is indeed a definitive concept and deserves its own account of history. From its humble beginnings in Springfield College of Massachusetts, it went on to cover a dynamic journey to rival soccer in not more than 100 years since its inception. 1. Language: English.

Ever since he joined the sports department of the Boston Globe in 1968, sports enthusiasts have been blessed with the writing and reporting of Bob Ryan. Tony Kornheiser calls him the "quintessential American sportswriter". For the past 25 years, he has also been a regular on various ESPN shows, especially The Sports Reporters, spreading his knowledge and enthusiasm for sports of all kinds. Born in 1946 in Trenton, New Jersey, Ryan cut his teeth going with his father to the Polo Grounds and Connie Mack Stadium, and to college basketball games at the Palestra in Philadelphia when it was the epicenter of the college game. As a young man, he became sports editor of his high school paper - and at age 23, a year into his Boston Globe experience, he was handed the Boston Celtics beat as the Bill Russell era ended and the Dave Cowens one began. His all-star career was launched. Ever since, his insight as a reporter and skills as a writer have been matched by an ability to connect with people - players, management, the reading public - probably because, at heart, he has always been as much a fan as a reporter. More than anything, Scribe reveals the people behind the stories, as only Bob Ryan can, from the NBA to 11 Olympics to his surprising favorite sport to cover - golf - and much more. It is sure to be one of the most talked about sports books of 2014, by one of the sports world’s most admired journalists. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bob Ryan.

March Madness has begun and college basketball playoffs are heating up, not that Robert Walker - a graduate student from Texas - particularly cares. He has decided to skip classes for the day, sleep in, and get some rest. Unfortunately, a brief spat on the phone with his fiancée makes that impossible. Hoping to take his mind off of it, he scans through TV channels in search of entertainment and instead finds one news report after another that warns of violence erupting in the streets.People are randomly and savagely attacking one another all along the East Coast from Maine to Florida. Some speculate it may be related to strange lights that have appeared in the sky above the outbreaks. Before any solid conclusions can be drawn, however, the brutality spreads, sweeping across the country until it hits Houston, then proceeds on to the West Coast. Robert, a handful of classmates, and a few others manage to survive the first wave and find themselves in the midst of civilization’s blackest hour, surrounded by pandemonium, bloodshed, and masses of people who have been stripped of their humanity. Hours later, as those strange lights continue to dominate the sky, the vicious horde undergoes a new transformation.There is no escaping the horror. Unable to reach his fiancée by phone, Robert sets out to find her, joined by a small ensemble of fellow survivors. The thirty-five miles they must cover are fraught with danger, and their terror grows with each step they take as they witness the genesis of a new Earth. Can they find a way to stop it? Will they even survive it? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Randy Fuller. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/153133/bk_acx0_153133_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
