Overview
Oscar Robertson, Jack Twyman, and the Cincinnati Royals. The University of Cincinnati and Xavier University in their annual crosstown shootout, one of the nation's great rivalries. Legendary coaches like Mary Jo Huismann and Bob Huggins. The longest game in college basketball history (seven overtimes!) and the creation of long baggy basketball shorts. The venerable Cincinnati Gardens and the Armory Fieldhouse. These are just a few of the people, places, and events in the colorful history of basketball in Cincinnati. Cincinnati Hoops is the story of basketball in an American city. The heritage of basketball in Cincinnati has never been fully revealed, and this book tells the complete story from the game's arrival in the Queen City to the present, exploring the cultural and social history of the sport. The role of women, segregation, amateur, and collegiate basketball, and the big business of the professional game are all documented in over 200 classic images.
