About this title


An account of the friendship of Hank Gathers and Bo Kimble chronicles their early years on the courts in Philadelphia, their respective careers at Loyola and L.A., Gathers's tragic death of heart failure, and Kimble's emergence from that tragedy. 45,000 first printing. National ad/promo.

From School Library Journal:

YA-- The tragic death of Hank Gathers on a college basketball court during a televised game stunned everyone: family, friends, and viewing audience. Between the two of them, Kimble and Gathers had broken most collegiate records and were well on their way to promising professional careers. Best of friends since public school days, these two outstanding athletes studied, worked, and played together. Reminiscent of William Blinn's Brian's Song (Bantam, 1983), this is an appealing account of Kimble's life and times with his buddy Hank. More than a sports story, it is a funny, sad, and honest picture of two black basketball players who liked and respected one another.
