"Indiana University basketball is religion to those who bleed Cream 'n Crimson, but as Michelle Medlock Adams and Del Duduit showcase in Heart of a Hoosier, it goes much deeper than that. It inspires with the faith and passion true believers need. The message is clear: speak your heart; seize the moment; overcome adversity; write a lasting legacy; and always, always move forward."--Pete DiPrimio, Indiana Sports Writers and Sportscasters Hall of Famer

"Heart of a Hoosier has its finger on the pulse of what makes Indiana basketball so special. Both this book and Hoosier hoops are about the passionate connection teams, families, and fans have to the game we love."--Kirk Haston, author of Days of Knight: How the General Changed My Life

"Many of my most precious memories from my time at Indiana University involved Bobby Knight and IU basketball. This book, Heart of a Hoosier brings those memories back to life. It is an absolute must read for not only IU basketball fans but for anyone who loves the game of basketball."--Jeff Ramey: Author and former baseball player at IU

"Award-winning authors Michelle Medlock Adams and Del Duduit really capture the essence of IU Basketball in their book, Heart of a Hoosier. This book offers 52 encouraging inspirations, highlighting great Indiana Basketball moments and the hallowed traditions that make IU Basketball so special. Even if you're a diehard fan, or even a former player, you're sure to learn a few fun facts about the candy-striped warmups, the IU Fight Song, and many of the players you've cheered for over the years."--Kent Benson, former NBA player, and member of the undefeated 1975-1976 IU teams and 1976 NCAA champions
