Description

The Falcons have the skill but not the height required to win their games. Will they be able to win the dreaded end-of-the-season game against their much taller rivals?
The Falcons have a problem: they've lost the first two games of the season. Although they have skill, they lack height. When Michael Mancino comes across an old issue of Sports Illustrated, he discovers the similarly vertically challenged UCLA Bruins who won the 1964 NCAA Championship with an aggressive and hard-to-beat full-court zone press. Will the Falcons be able to make a comeback and win against the much bigger eighth-grade team?
Author Fred Bowen continues his Sports Story series with full court, play-by-play action that's sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats An afterword provides the real story behind the 1964 UCLA Bruins.
