Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungSo writes the New York Times about the Tennessee Lady Vols who, led by their coach Pat Summitt, entered the 1997-98 season aiming for an almost unprecedented "threepeat" of NCAA championships. Raise the Roof takes you right inside the locker room of Summitt's amazing team, whose inspired mixture of gifted freshmen and seasoned stars produced a standard of play that would change the game of women's basketball forever.Despite behind-the-scenes dramas -- the possibility that star player Chamique Holdsclaw would turn pro, an unwelcome fan who stalked one team member -- out on the court, the win column was swelling with every game. Along the way, the Lady Vols were redefining what young women were capable of, trading in old definitions of femininity for new ones. And, by the time they entered the NCAA Final Four tournament in Kansas City, Summitt found herself believing the impossible: Despite all the distractions, the Lady Vols could go undefeated, and, in doing so, raise the roof off the sport of women's basketball.
