"An unmatched collection bringing to high school basketball the nuance and detail the film Bull Durham brought to minor league baseball. Poems so compelling, so varied, so familiar to anyone who has felt the impact of high school sports that they may well introduce a new genre. This is a terrific book —there’s nothing like it."—Conrad Hilberry

JACK RIDL has authored collections of poetry including Broken Symmetry, and is co-author of several textbooks. CASE/Carnegie Foundation awarded him Michigan Professor of the Year.
