When March Went Mad
(© Tim Peeler, 2007) By Tim Peeler
Foreword by Dick Vitale
$24.99+tax & shipping
The greatest ending to the greatest upset in NCAA Tournament history was built on more than just one reactionary shot. The entire 1982-83 season by head coach Jim Valvano and his "Cardiac Pack" was a remarkable confluence of unlikely events, beginning the broken foot--thought to be career-ending--suffered by senior guard Dereck Whittenburg and continuing through nine heart-stopping postseason contests in the ACC and NCAA tournaments.
This book, published for the 25th anniversary of that amazing season, highlights those remarkable events and catches up with every member of the team a quarter century after the events that changed each of their lives.
A primary source for the Emmy-award winning ESPN documentary "Survive and Advance," by director Johnathan Hock, When March Went Mad tells the whole story of what happened during that remarkable season and in the quarter century that followed.
