I figured I had read every quote and every account of the famed Duke-Kentucky Regional Final game in 1992, but Gene Wojciechowski managed to put me right back in 1992, making it all brand new and keeping me on the edge of my seat. His new book, THE LAST GREAT GAME: Duke vs. Kentucky and the 2.1 Seconds that Changed Basketball, cleverly infuses the emotion, tension and humor of not only the in-game action, but everything that lead up to that â€œone shining moment.â€
Weaving in first-hand recollections and quotes from players, staff and family, he gives the reader a fresh perspective all these years later. He takes you back and forth between pivotal moments for the Duke and Kentucky programs, building excitement as you go on each teamâ€™s journey toward the 1992 Final Four.
Iâ€™m impressed with this book on many levels. Although written for sports fans, there is enough going on that someone who may not even be familiar with Duke or Kentucky basketball can enjoy it.
Wojciechowski has put together the definitive and most entertaining account of â€œThe Last Great Game.â€
