Four college basketball programs featured in new hardcover book

Pediment Publishing is proud to announce a partnership with Graham Honaker and Jerry Logan on a limited-edition book that showcases how Villanova, Gonzaga, Davidson and Loyola-Chicago broke the mold and found lasting success. The NCAA men’s basketball tournament manufactures the Cinderella story like clockwork, but most Cinderellas come and go. When next year’s bracket is revealed, the boxes are all blank once more and a fresh pack of underdogs crowds the edges of the field. Yet, over time a small group of one-time Cinderellas have broken the mold to become something more, and their blueprints are stunningly similar. With inside stories featuring some of college basketball’s most recognizable personalities, “Unbracketed” explores how Villanova, Gonzaga, Davidson and Loyola-Chicago have pulled off the biggest upset: turning the Cinderella story into a lasting narrative of big-time college athletics done the right way.

Production is underway now, with release set for November 18, 2022. Pre-orders are open at Pediment Publishing.
