According to the Alexandria Gazette Packet, “The book was years in the making by celebrated sportswriter John McNamara, one of five journalists killed in June of 2018 at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis. His widow, Chamblee, joined forces with longtime D.C. sportswriter Elfin to complete McNamara’s book, which traces the evolution and history of high school hoops in the metropolitan D.C. area. The book covers 100 years of high school basketball in the region, from the first game played in 1900, to the induction of DeMatha Catholic’s Morgan Wootten into the Hall of Fame in 2000.”
