''Destination Basketball'' authors Hemminger, Bensch
Hemminger and Bensch's story is about two lifelong best friends and their 15-month, around-the-world-trek to sit face-to-face with the best coaches in college hoops.
Starting with a simple idea in June 2006, they set out to accomplish the improbable. Compiling a list entailing many of the top coaches leading the most prominent and recognized programs, along with a number of past greats, the pair immediately went to work, despite possessing no clout within college basketball.
The book is a compilation of the interviews they had with each coach. Some of the coaches they spoke with include: Rick Barnes, Texas Longhorns; John Beilein, Michigan Wolverines; Jim Boeheim, Syracuse Orange; Billy Donovan, Florida Gators; Mark Few, Gonzaga Bulldogs; Ben Howland, UCLA Bruins; Tom Izzo, Michigan State Spartans; Gene Keady, Purdue Boilermakers; Bob Knight, Texas Tech Red Raiders; Mike Krzyzewski, Duke Blue Devils.
