Book Excerpt : On March 18, 1980, the Duke basketball program announced the hiring Mike Krzyzewski, the man who would restore glory to the team. The only problem: no one knew who Krzyzewski was. Nine days later, Jim Valvano was hired by North Carolina State to be their new head coach. The hiring didn't raise as many eyebrows, but the two new coaches had a similar goal: to unseat North Carolina's Dean Smith as the king of college basketball. And just like that, the most sensational competitive decade in the history of the NCAA was about to unfold. The Legends Club captures an era in American sports and culture as John Feinstein pulls back the curtain on the recruiting wars, the intensely personal rivalries that weren't always friendly, the enormous pressure and national stakes, and the battle for the very soul of college basketball.
