Bobby Byington has always had to navigate his father’s alcoholism and anger, but things are looking up. His father has stopped drinking, his mother is back home, and his basketball team is winning games. But two new problems surface when his "smart" girlfriend is bullied by a resentful schoolmate and a fellow team member is bullied by an abusive father.

This is the second novel in the No Name series.
"It's good to see the language and traditions of the Native American experience so prominently woven throughout a straightforward sports story."
– Booklist
"The basketball action is clear and engaging, and readers so inclined will wish they could play under Coach Robinson. A lesson in sympathy, delivered with heart. "
