ABOUT THIS PROJECT
In the book The Dynasties & The THREE and how Naismith’s game changed we have studied the evolution of basketball from December 1891 to the present. There is an emphasis on CHANGE! Changing rules, changing facilities, changing strategies, and changing fundamental skills. There is an entire section on the three-point shot and what a difference it has made to today’s game.
And then most significant section in the book for Windsorites is section B on Dynasties’. Herein, we study six basketball teams/organizations that have captured a minimum of two and a maximum of nine Canadian national basketball championships. Twenty-six titles combined. For each one of these organizations (Windsor Alumni, Windsor AKO, Windsor Club 240, Windsor Lancers men and women, Windsor Express) former players and coaches have identified All-stars and MVPs. In addition, there is a compelling chapter about the best 60 Women players, in Windsor and Essex County in the last 60 years.
The book will be sold online through Hospice for $25. 100% of your investment goes directly to Hospice since we were fortunate enough to aquire sponsors who generously financed the printing of this book. All other services, publishing and editing and writing were provided by volunteers, devoted to Hospice.
