The charismatic basketball coach at the University of
Connecticut reveals the victorious secrets behind his team's
breathtaking journey to the 1999 NCAA Division I National
Championship--and along the way shares his philosophy for winning.
It was one of those games that basketball fans will talk about
for years. Here was the seemingly unbeatable Duke Blue Devils pitted
against the first-time finalist Connecticut Huskies, and at stake was
the ultimate crown: the National Championship. On that unforgettable
night in St. Petersburg, Jim Calhoun and his amazing team wrote a new
chapter in the storied history of the UConn Huskies program, putting the
perfect exclamation point on a season to remember.
behind the high drama that fateful night in Florida lay an even more
fascinating tale of one man's rise to college basketball preeminence. In
Dare to Dream, the Huskies iron-willed coach, Jim Calhoun, for
the first time shares his own story about his inspirational family and
the tragedies they faced; about his early successful years at
Northeastern, where he began to compile the first half of a unique
double (he's the only coach to have won at least 250 games at two
different Division I schools); and about his assumption of ultimate
responsibility at the sleeping giant in Storrs, Connecticut.
/>Along the way, Jim Calhoun paints fascinating portraits of the players
who have done battle for him, and of the unsung heroes behind the
scenes whose hard work and dedication to Connecticut basketball have
kept the dream alive. In just thirteen years, Jim Calhoun has turned the
Huskies into one of the leading basketball programs in the country, and
in this moving, funny, and inspiring book, he takes us behind the
scenes to show us just how he did it.
