A naturally talented basketball player, noah cruise is determined to beome a doctor using his basketball scholarship to ucla pre-med.

"...razzle-dazzle editing and direction  Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

Editor's Note
Director and screenwriter Preston A. Whitmore II (THE WALKING DEAD) captures the phenomenon of streetball and brings it to the big screen in this tale about two old friends whose lives seem very different. Tech's (Anthony Mackie) dream is to play basketball, but he isn't quite right for the NBA and he can't play college ball since he served time in his senior year and is studying for the GED. Instead, he plays the occasional game in an abandoned Detroit train station and hustles players all around the city with his friend Up (Lil J.J.) for quick cash. Meanwhile, his best buddy, Cruise (Wesley Jonathan), is a talented player who has been sweet-talked by agents and left with nothing--except the realization that education is everything. He's counting on a basketball scholarship to a California university and a career in medicine--rather than his ball-playing ability--as the key to his future.

Life becomes more complicated when Cruise repays a favor to Tech and puts his scholarship at risk by playing streetball on his pal's team in a game arranged by Vaughn (Wayne Brady), a former sports agent. Amazed by what he sees on the court, Vaughn is soon trying to woo Cruise with NBA promises, much to the delight of his new girlfriend, Vanessa (Eva Pigford, winner of AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL), who can only see dollar signs. When the unthinkable happens, Cruise and Tech learn that they are not that different after all, and that their friendship can withstand anything. Real streetball players, including Phillip "Hot Sauce" Champion, who plays the greedy and arrogant local streetball champ, Jewelz, are used throughout the film, which features plenty of riveting action. Alecia Fears also stars as Tech's girlfriend, Eboni.

Professional Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle 5 of 10
The new basketball movie "Crossover" loses its street credibility in the first five minutes, when Wayne Brady shows up as a corrupt tough-guy sports agent. Why not cast Emmanuel Lewis as a gangsta rapper? Or Don Knotts as "Scarface"?...Worst of all, "Crossover" is a street basketball movie that has maybe 10 minutes of basketball scenes -- many of which seem to have been shot by strapping cameras on the backs of stray dogs. Imagine if "The Rock" director Michael Bay aimed his shaky camera on the action in "Hoosiers"..."Crossover" has one redeeming quality: a heart that's in the right place. It's a bad movie with a good message... - Peter Hartlaub

Variety 5 of 10
The underground version of basketball known as streetball comes above ground in "Crossover," but the fascinating freeform game gets screened out by a ludicrous soap opera with poor dramatic moves. Overshadowed by vastly superior sports movies like "Invincible" and hardly disguising its low-budget sources, pic isn't in any kind of shape for the theatrical leagues...A signal that Whitmore's script is in need of a rewrite is how Vaughn's love interest Nikki (Kristen Wilson) is used as a crude aud surrogate to be schooled on this wildcat version of hoops, only to then quickly exit the movie for good...A comic treatment would have clearly benefited "Crossover," but Whitmore's apparent taste for a meller ruins what could have been a fun time. - Robert Koehler
