UConn was a fledging women's basketball program that had been to one Final Four as of 1995. Tennessee was the king of the hill having won 7 National Championships and having produced some of the greatest women's players of all time. Pat Summitt was and is the head coach and is widely considered to be one of the top coaches in women's or men's college basketball history. In fact, she turned down the Tennessee head men's coaching job. She agreed to play Geno Auriemma and UConn in 1995 in an epic battle in Storrs, CT. UConn won that game and won the National Championship that year and off and running was the series. It has produced as much if not more drama than Red Sox-Yankees, Cowboys-Giants and Knicks-Celtics. It has been compared to Carolina-Duke on the men's side. It is certainly produced more National Championships than both of those schools. "What Duke and North Carolina represent in men's college basketball, UConn and Tennessee represent in women's college basketball, the greatest rivalry in the game. Two teams that when pinned against one another in 1995 for the National Championship changed the sport of women's college basketball forever. The cast of characters from the polarized Hall of Fame coaches to the all-American icons have raised the bar, the talent and the media awareness at the national level. Although the characters change from year to year, the national fever of this matchup continues to grow. It is an ongoing saga that defines women's basketball and encapsulates all that is good and possible about athletic competition. Any young player should read this book and understand that without these teams, these coaches, these players, we would be watching women's basketball exclusively in March at the Final Four." Colleen Healey, former UConn women's basketball player."Every sport needs its standard bearers and that is what Tennessee and UConn are in collegiate women's basketball." Chris Gobrecht, Head Women's Basketball Coach, Yale University "Any conversations of the greatest schools to ever play collegiate women's basketball must always include the names Connecticut and Tennessee. The two have combined to win 12 of the first 26 National Championship trophies and have played some historic regular season and championship games in the process. There promises to be many more pages to add to this storied rivalry in the years to come." Rick Nixon, NCAA "Having had the privilege of being a part of the Tennessee-Connecticut rivalry from 1995 to 2002 I can say from first hand experience that it has been one of the best sports rivalries in our country over the past decade. It has two very important elements that make for a classic rivalry - talented teams coached by the two best and most charismatic coaches in the business. It doesn't get any better that that." Al Brown, Assistant Women's Basketball Coach, Duke University.

The sixteen original essays in this collection cover influential and famous rivalries from a variety of sports, including track and field, golf, boxing, basketball, tennis, ice skating, baseball, football, soccer, and more. The essays are diverse, but together they illustrate what is common to any rivalry: equally matched opponents that often have decidedly different backgrounds, styles, and personalities. These differences may center on race and culture, political and societal ideologies, personality, geography, or religion—a mix intensified by fans and the media. From highly publicized and emotionally charged individual competitions to bitterly fought team contests, Rivals illuminates what one-of-a-kind opponents and the passion they inspire tell us about ourselves and our society.
