John Feinstein On College Basketball

Guest: John Feinstein Author of many books most recently The Last Amateurs: Playing for Glory and Honor in Division I College Basketball (Little Brown & Co., 2000) Commentator, NPR's Morning Edition Sports writer John Feinstein knows college basketball. He's written several books on the high profile lives of players and coaches on the top college teams. His newest book The Last Amateurs looks at the less well-known Patriot League, where players play for the love of basketball and no one leaves college early to join the NBA. John Feinstein joins Juan Williams to discuss what he calls The Last Amateurs.
