Before Allen, Wooden, Rupp, Smith, or Knight, there was “Professor” Ernest Blood, one of the true pioneers of basketball. In a 55-year Hall of Fame coaching career, that saw him win 1,268 games while losing only 165, Prof’s philosophies would become the fundamentals of the modern game, making him arguably the “father” of all coaches. This is the true story of the game’s first great coach, the architect of the legendary winning streak of 159 games at Passaic High School, still a record today. Writers: Eric Nemoto, Chic Hess. Pages: 130.
