Welcome to basketball at North Carolina State. One team star is high on cocaine. Another beats a larceny conviction. Marijuana smoke billows before a big game. Players drive new cars, flash gold, and have wads of cash. Semi-illiterates get "a"s in classes. Nobody flunks, and almost nobody graduates. Racial tensions flare as teammates sag=vage each other for the playing time they all have been promised.
This is how the game was played under super coach Jim Valvano. This is the book the collage tried to suppress. This is the spur to a mafor NCAA investigation. This is sports reading at its most exiting and explosive.
