Perfect Season : A Memoir of the 1964-1965 Evansville College Purple Aces (Paperback) (Russell Grieger)
about this item
In 1964, the Evansville College Purple Aces raced undefeated through the Indiana Collegiate Conference, posting a perfect 24–0 regular-season record and winning the College Division NCAA championship. The skeleton of this season exists in newspaper archives and in books that capture the on-court action, but the flesh and blood has never been written—until now. This is the story of Russell Grieger, a starting guard, and his observations, feelings, reactions, and struggles of that season. It provides a game-by-game look into the team, showcasing Grieger’s teammates, Coach Arad McCutchan, and Evansville’s love for the Aces. The Perfect Season is an insider's inspiring story of a team whose motto—"If you’re going to go, go big time or don’t go at all"—inspired them to achieve their dream.
