Kathy Orton has covered college basketball for the Washington Post for more than a decade. She was also the newspaper's beat writer on the NFL's Baltimore Ravens for two seasons, including their Super Bowl season in 2000.
"Not many people are aware of the drama of Ivy League basketball.
Outside the Limelight is a wonderful tribute to one of the
most undervalued conferences in college basketball. I know. I've
got the tuition bills."--Tony Kornheiser "Washington Post and ESPN
"In my book, there's no such thing as an Ivy League player. There is such a thing as a basketball player who happens to play in the Ivy League. As Outside the Limelight reveals, when they come out of the locker room and step across the white line, they are basketball players. Period."
--Pete Carril "former Princeton coach and Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame member "
"Orton, a Washington Post sports writer, makes a game effort of illuminating the inside game of a sport that has been remarkably monotonous in its outcome."--Bloomberg News
