#1 High School Hoops Movie Ever!!

by Nick on 2/16/2000

This movie brings back the fundamentals of basketball that have long been forgotten in this age of slam dunks and money making. The Farmland of Indiana is an ideal place for this movie to take place. It's a must see for old-time hoops fans!

one of the best movies ever! I can't believe that it is a true story! This is one of those movies that you can watch over and over. Not just basketball fans will like it. I love the part where he measures the rim, and the free throw line! excellent m
