Champion of the Court by Charles Spain Verral, 4th Scholastic paperback printing, T48, September 1963, 154 pages. Cover by Miller Pope.
DESCRIPTION:“The crowd was shrieking! Rocky cut for the basket, faked a shot, and ten, pivoting, he slammed the ball right to Frenchy.
Frenchy took it against his chest. It had to be good! If victory comes, who deserves credit? The Pineville Panthers? Rocky, the star? Or Mama Beaumont, who finds out the trouble with Rocky?” (from the back cover)
