After The Last Dance


It’s down to the final four – Kentucky, Connecticut, Butler and our own downstate neighbor VCU. As March Madness spills into April for the final championship games, here’s some recommended reading on the sport. Writing in “The Daily Beast” Joshua Robinson offers his best picks for "Hoop Reads" once the Last Dance ends. A Sense of Where You Are: A Profile of Bill Bradley at Princeton by John McPhee and A Season on the Brink: A Year With Bob Knight and the Indiana Hoosiers by John Feinstein top his list.

Here are some other books you might enjoy:

Last Dance: Behind the Scenes at the Final Four by John Feinstein

A Method to March Madness: An Insider’s Look at the Final Four by C.J. Jones
