How Sweet It Is
KENTUCKY CROWNS ONLY ONE state basketball champion each high school season. There are no separate tournaments or trophies for schools with similar enrollments or religious affiliations. There is only one championship and one champion. How Sweet It Is chronicles the season-long quest of three geographically, socio-economically, and culturally diverse teams to reach the storied "Sweet Sixteen," played in Rupp Arena. The colorful, first-hand description of the players, coaches, and supporters of these teams is interlaced with stories from the rich history of Kentucky high school basketball.
