A movie of hope and success in spite of trials and tribulations.
12 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A very well done movie on a small budget. The directing by Don Abernathy is excellent and the basketball scenes are both tense and realistic. All the girls in the movie gave top notch performances (as pretty much unknowns). Of course Tony Todd and Debbie Allen were great in their roles. The message of never giving up in spite of the odds and believing in the TEAM and TEAMWORK is a message more urban films should be espousing. All of the actors playing the basketball girls (Shuga, Two-Two, Slick, Capricorn, Kiwi, Boo Baby, et. al.) would seem to have nice careers in front of them as they gain more exposure and experience. Don Abernathy deserves a chance to direct a film with a bigger budget and more experienced actors to really show his stuff. His potential is obvious.
