A Chip Hilton Sports Story "Buzzer Basket" by Clair Bee, published by Grosset & Dunlap, copyright 1962. 175 page hard cover book.
"State University's basketball team, sparked by Chip Hilton, seemed to be headed for another victorious season. Then, in rapid successions, a series of events put the brakes on State's high hopes. In mid-season a new coach, with an entirely different system of play, took over. And Chip, who had been working too hard at his job at State Drug, his studies, and basketball practice, was temporarily put on the inactive list. The result was almost disastrous for the team. Thus, Chip Hilton faced one of his most severe challenges. Would he able to pull the team together again? Could he induce Coach Mike Stone to adopt the type of play that had made them champions? What could he do to help win the crucial game with Northern State? How Chip Hilton faces these tests of character and skill is revealed in this exciting story. Everyone who enjoys basketball and swift action will welcome this new book by one of America's great coaches."
