From the Publisher:
Entering the 2011 college basketball season, the only expectations on the UConn Huskies basketball team were no expectations at all. Just two years after reaching the Final Four, the club was young, mired in an NCAA investigation, and seemingly at the bottom of the college basketball barrel. Not only were they picked to finish tenth in their own conference, UConn didn't receive a single vote in either preseason poll. A once proud program had hit rock-bottom.Fortunately, no one told superstar Kemba Walker or his young teammates. From the beginning, this group of Huskies was different. They were hungry. They played for the name on the front of the jersey, instead of the back. They cared only about wins and losses, not ancillary stats in the box score. And it showed as the Huskies took their fans, and the college basketball world as a whole on a wild six-month ride. It started with an epic win at the prestigious Maui Invitational, through a historic five wins in five days at the Big East Tournament, and eventually culminating with a National Championship to end the year.Join author Aaron Torres as he takes you through the ups and downs of a college basketball season, and team that will resonate among fans forever. The 2011 UConn Huskies may not go down as the greatest team in the history of college basketball. But they just might be the best story ever.
