I love this story of a tiny Kentucky high school and thier rise to the State Championship. Did I mention the Harlem Globtrotters figure in thier game plan! It's a wonderful story covering the history of rural basketball, some of the poorest non-black communities in the US, the NCAA basketball tounement and the triumph of the human spirit.

My only question is why no one has turned it into a screen-play yet.
