I very much enjoyed the history relayed in this book, but it tries too hard to explain too much. At the end, the discussion of the murder seemed completely out of context with the rest of the story. While I understood the point of the murder intertwined with the book's focus on Jim Crow, it simply didn't fit the focus of those issues as they pertained to NCCU and Duke. Additionally, the chapters on Phog Allen and even to a certain extent, Naismith, just seemed to draw attention away from the importance of the "Secret game." Again, it just seemed to being trying too hard to incorporate too much.
A step back in history to when blacks and whites in the south were not permitted to be seen working together let alone equals. One chapter, the game, appeared to help take one small step forward in ending segregation.
