Wonderful association copy of this instructional book from the dominant women's basketball coach at Delta State University from 1973-1979, Margaret Wade (1912-1995).  Wade played for the Lady Statesmen from 1930-32 and then won three straight national championships from 1975-77 as a coach at the school.  During that span, the team had an improbable 51 game winning streak.  Wade was inducted into the Naismith hall of Fame in 1985.

This copy signed to the important University of Tennessee men's basketball coach (1962-77), Ray Mears.  Mears ranks in the top 15 all-time in terms of winning percentage with a .747 mark in the NCAA.   


A fantastic grouping from the historic program at Delta State.
