The Dandy Dons
Bill Russell, K.C. Jones, Phil Woolpert, and One of College Basketball's Greatest and Most Innovative TeamseBook - 2009
In the mid-1950s three unrecruited black basketball players, coached by a white former prison guard who had never before coached a college team, led a small Jesuit university in San Francisco to two national titles. The Dandy Dons describes for the first time how the unprecedented accomplishment of the Dons, led by coach Phil Woolpert and future hall-of-famers Bill Russell and K.C. Jones, paved the way for black talent in major college basketball and transformed the sport.
