The Secret Game : A Basketball Story in Black and White Paperback / softback
In 1943, at the North Carolina College for Negroes, Coach John McLendon was on the verge of changing basketball forever.
His team was the highest-scoring team in America, and yet they faced danger whenever they traveled backcountry roads. Across town, the best squad on Duke University's campus wasn't the Blue Devils, but an all-white team from the medical school.
They were prepared to take on anyone -- until an audacious invitation arrived.
THE SECRET GAME is the story of a long-buried moment in the nation's sporting past.
A riveting account of a barrier-shattering game, the evolution of modern basketball - and the coming of a new America.
