Summary
"As the dark clouds of World War II loom on the horizon, an American original named Kenny Sailors captures the attention of the country and leads the University of Wyoming basketball program on an astonishing run to the NCAA championship. Sailors, pioneer of the modern jump shot, took New York's Madison Square Garden by storm while leading the Cowboys to a national championship. Before the confetti was cleaned up, the All-American was off to war. The Wyoming treasure would return to campus in Laramie and later became one of the NBA's early stars. [This work] weaves the brilliant tapestry of Wyoming's rich hoops history--from the program's original championship team of the 1930s to high-soaring Flynn Robinson and the dazzling Fennis Dembo--around Sailors's remarkable story"--Back cover
