|About the Book|
When hearts start thumping in March throughout America, it’s not because it’s spring, but because it’s time once again to crown a victor among the elite college basketball teams. College b-ball has finally netted the prestige of other sports by hosting a tournament every bit as exhilarating to behold as the run-up and playing of the Super Bowl. We all know it’s a spectator event with a huge audience-nearly 142 million viewers watched the games in 2005. What’s completely unknown are the many stories, anecdotes, and trivia collected here by Allan Zullo, the king of sports facts and author of over 80 books. Only someone with Allan’s access could bring home all the funny, sad, and poignant drama that’s unfolded both on and off the court during the annual spectacular. The book also features unique profiles of the game’s most courageous as well as its zaniest characters. From his insider’s vantage point, Allan has created a unique compendium that will launch a million office trivia events and delight sports fans everywhere.
