The book ties in the Newport Central Catholic graduate's experience of playing basketball at Thomas More College to walking on with no guarantee of even making the team at the University of Kentucky.
Walter Cornett, of Glendale, Kentucky, is the owner and operator of Walter's Wildcat World. He founded WildcatWorld.com in 1998 making it one of the oldest Kentucky basketball fan sites in operation today.
