Hello from Chicago, the latest stop on our round of personal appearances in support of our book: College Basketball Prospectus 2008-2009. If last night’s signing is any indication, Ken’s favorite sound bite this year will be: ”DePaul could be this year’s Drake.” Then again maybe he was just saying that because we were in the DePaul Barnes & Noble.
Now, coming this weekend….
Duke University: Saturday, November 8, 7pm, Regulator Books, 720 9th Street, Durham: Ken and I will be signing books and talking hoops. Is Coach K’s new high-speed low-TO style here to stay? Can the Devils make it to the tournament’s second weekend this year? And what about that other area top-10 team? Come on out and all shall be revealed.
University of Kentucky: Sunday, November 9, 2pm, Joseph-Beth Booksellers, 161 Lexington Green Cir #B, Lexington: Last year Kentucky had enough injuries to last a normal team for two or three seasons. Assuming they stay healthy this year, how far can Coach Gillispie take Patterson & company? And what about that other (kind of) area team, the one down the road in Louisville? Stop by and find out.
Blue Devils, Wildcats, and anyone else in the immediate vicinities, hope to see you this weekend.
