Almost a century of UT basketball is covered in this exhaustively researched book. The reader is treated to anecdotes ranging from ridiculous to sublime and from funny to tragic, as well as player rebellions, hiring and firing of coaches and wild rumbles culminating in the 1963 UT-A&M game at Gregory Gym. Pennington also charts the painfully slow process of racial integration, the ebb and flow of opposing teams in and out of the Southwest Conference and Big 12 and shows how Dr. James Naismith's game has evolved from plodding, ground-bound finesse to the muscle, speed, altitude and exponentially greater skills of today. The orange-and-white stars of the past are recalled, including Clyde Littlefield, Holly Brock, Jack Gray, Bobby Moers, Slater Martin, Raymond Downs, Jay Arnette, Larry Robinson, Johnny Moore, Travis Mays, Terrence Rencher and Reggie Freeman.
