Abstract:

For fifty seasons Lute Olson has been teaching young athletes the skills of basketball---and life. Starting as a high school coach, he worked his way to the top of the basketball world, winning more than a thousand games, a national championship, and a world championship, producing some of the NBA's biggest stars, and eventually being enshrined in the basketball Hall of Fame. This is the story of his upbringing in North Dakota; of the eighteen years it took to finally coach for a major college team; of coaching famed players, the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Arizona Wildcats, as well as of bitter losses and breathtaking wins. This is his story, from recruiting in the dangerous projects of big cities and the vast farmlands of the Midwest, to finally winning an NCAA championship.--From publisher description.
