About the Author
This book charts the growth and history of basketball in Europe. It is largely a statistical recap of men's and women's competitions dating from the inception of the sport in Europe in 1935 through 2012. The work begins with a two-page introduction to the history of the sport. . . .It does show . . . how Europe's inaugural championship competition has grown from 10 teams in 1932 to 24 teams competing today. The bulk of the volume consists of statistics on game results, team rosters, medalists, and standings for European championship games. Many of these records are difficult to come by and many have never before been published.
