Good Enough to Be Great: The Inside Story of Maryland Basketball's National Championship Season
by Josh Barr
Book Description:
The 2001-02 season was a magical one for the Maryland basketball team, culminating in the school's first-ever NCAA title. But as Washington Post sportswriter Josh Barr reveals in Good Enough to Be Great, it was never an easy road. Barr, who has spent four years on the Maryland beat, had unrivaled access to Terrapin coaches and players, and here he provides the extraordinary behind-the-scenes story of Maryland's rise to glory.

This was a season marked by daunting expectations, unwanted distractions, even tragedy. Barr shows how the Terrapins coped with it all-from the devastating phone call Coach Gary Williams received before the biggest game of the year to the shocking news that the brother of starting forward Byron Mouton had been murdered.

He also reveals how, under Williams's leadership, players most observers had sneered at became the best team in college basketball. Barr offers keen insight into just what separated the Terrapins from every other team in the country-and from previous Maryland teams that always came up short.

Along the way, we get riveting portraits of unlikely All-American Juan Dixon, who in high school lost both parents to drug-related AIDS; standout center Lonny Baxter, once considered too short and too chubby to play big-time college basketball; sophomore Chris Wilcox, the amazingly talented but frustratingly inconsistent forward; fiery Gary Williams, the coach who, many critics had said, could never win the big one; and many others.

Good Enough to Be Great is a remarkable story of talent and determination at college basketball's highest levels.
