“For the last three decades, Barry Jacobs has been among the most respected and dedicated sportswriters covering the world of college basketball. Across the Line is his finest work. This book tells the important stories of the brave young men who were only looking to play a game, but ended up making history. Exhaustively researched and eloquently written, Across the Line is a must-read for sports and non-sports fans alike.”
--Seth Davis, college basketball analyst, Sports Illustrated/CBS
"The author's exhaustive interviews and impeccable research present a gut-wrenchingly clear picture of the obstacles the athletes encountered..This should be required reading for sports fans of all backgrounds."
