    I so much wish that I had been able to see this game But Goldberg does a excellent job of recapturing the atmosphere and surrounding of this epic game even knowing the outcome I loved the insights by the coaches and players Auriemma and Taurasi were hilarious as always The injury to Shea Ralph in the game was tragic and I teared up at her anger and I came to truly respect the Notre Dame team a group of players I hadn't know much about I didn't know about her before this book what an amazing story As a Seattle Storm fan it was fun you see a younger Sue Bird and Swin Cash learning and making mistakes And Sue doing what Sue does best

    Reading this book teleports you to the days leading up to the game I felt as if I was there as a spectator on the stands The incidents and events are well described in the book and its worthy of such a great game I hope whoever that loves Sue Dee and all the rest of the players of UCONN and Notre Dame will read this book as this is a special time in their lives I just finished reading it and its WOW this is why we love basketball
