Technically it;s fiction, but more like "based on a true story". Some liberties have been taken with some details and the timeline and the names have changed to protect the guilty, but for anyone familiar with UF's '03 championship team, it is not exactly hard to guess the true identities of Magley's coaches and teammates (e.g. the sub-5 ft Mexican, the black girl that had a baby, or the senior playing out of her depths at #1).
OMG so i was deceived? LOL i am getting a paperback sent to me. I teasingly facebooked her and asked "will this base loosely on reality?" she said not at all. I knew it was!! It would be fun to read her version of the 03 team drama because I am actually good friends with most of the team back then (magley, reyes, whom i just visited down in miami, dawaf, rotondi...). the only person i never associated with, or the whole team for that matter, was scaringe. she just seemed a hot mess.

i am excited about the book tho!
