Item description for Jumping Through Hoops: Why Penn Wins by Harold I. Gullan...
Jumping Through Hoops: Why Penn Wins is about a lot more than Penn basketball. In a compact but compelling way, Dr. Harold Gullan intertwines the unique history of the University of Pennsylvania with that of Philadelphia itself and the overall state of intercollegiate athletics today. The author's reflections on a typical season of Penn Basketball (which turned out to be anything but typical), is really far less about why Penn wins than why Penn matters. As the men's basketball team at Penn moves ahead to a new season under new leadership, it is still a pivotal component of the Ivy League and the Big 5. Beyond that, however, this book will appeal to a wide spectrum of readers, whether they are basketball fans or not, and wherever they may have gone to school.
