Five-Point Play

Duke's Journey to the 2001 National Championship
By Mike Krzyzewski, Donald T. Phillips (Electronic Book, 2001)
With the thrilling 2001 basketball season as a backdrop, Coach K takes the reader behind the scenes -- into the locker room, into team meetings, into his office and his home speaking one-on-one with individual players -- all the while teaching, guiding, motivating, and inspiring.

Coach K shows how one player, a transfer student named Dahntay Jones, helped the team succeed without ever playing a minute of any game. And as he describes the devastating injuries and inconsistency, he returns again and again to his dynamic duo of Battier and Williams, as well as the development of such players as Carlos Boozer, Chris Duhon, and Mike Dunleavy, all of whom would play crucial roles during March Madness.

As this story builds to a thrilling conclusion, we realize that we are reading more than a sports story. "Five-Point Play" is living proof that adversity and triumph often go hand in hand, and that when it comes to leadership -- from the hardwood to the boardroom -- no one ever does it alone.
