This book will follow five prominent teams over the course of two years, and will include recruiting and the 2005 Junior Nationals, and go right up through the NCAA tournament in 2006.

Richard Kent is an attorney and founder, editor, and publisher of Big East Women's Basketball Report. He lives in Westport, Connecticut.From Booklist:
Women's college basketball, though still lagging behind the men's game in media attention, is a growing phenomenon. Kent chronicles the 1999-2000 season as experienced by four top women's programs: Tennessee, Connecticut, Rutgers, and Sacred Heart. Mirroring the men's game, women's basketball is dominated by its coaches, and the quartet represented here are among the most notable. Tennessee's Pat Summitt is one of basketball's--men or women--most successful coaches; Gene Auriemma has turned Connecticut into a perennial contender for the national title; and Vivian Stringer has won more than 600 games at Rutgers. Ed Swanson at Sacred Heart, though not as successful as the other three, may be the most interesting: a 34-year old Sacred Heart grad, he is leading the school into Division I competition and seems destined to rise to the top. Supplementing Kent's reportage are insights from the sports journalists who regularly cover these teams for the local press. This is a fine overview for those looking for insights into the women's game. Wes Lukowsky
