Storyline

Based on a true story of Hank Gathers, a basketball player from Loyola Marymount who collapsed and died during a game. Hank is a loudmouth Philly kid who is one of the best high school basketball players in the city. His rival comes in the form of Bo Kimble, a more serious athlete who doesn't care for Hank's reckless behavior. When the two players get recruited by USC, they eventually become friends. Hank and Bo are not really played much the USC team, and head to Loyola Marymount where the two become college sensations. Written by Pat McCurry <ccgrad97@aol.com>

Good made for TV movie
1 February 2003 | by (Woodbridge,VA) – See all my reviews

Final Shot: The Hank Gathers Story is great made for TV movie about star that stopped shining too soon. I didn't know a lot about Hank Gathers since hey day was when I was a child. But from seeing the movie I learned a few things. Victor Love gives a great performance in the lead role and if the movie is ever on TV it's worth checking out.
