Last season, however, Indiana crowned its last all-state champion, marking the end of an eighty-five-year-old Hoosier tradition. Next year, small-school teams -- like the one in the movie Hoosiers -- will no longer have a chance to upset the big-school Goliaths and go all the way.
In Where the Game Matters Most, William Gildea captures all the drama, tension, and excitement of this final all-state championship season. Following the fortunes of four very different teams, he brings to life the traditions, the rivalries, the mounting pressures, and the desperate dreams as the season moves toward a dramatic final showdown in Indianapolis. Here is a brilliant evocation of a place where basketball is not only a game but a way of life.
