Storyline

While most sports films celebrate the quest for a championship, "Quantum Hoops" follows a team that is searching for a single win. The documentary chronicles the final week of the 2006 Caltech basketball season. The team is currently in the midst of a 21 year losing streak - over 240 consecutive conference losses. Caltech is annually considered one of the top 5 academic institutions in the world yet its athletic department always takes a back seat to the achievements of its world renowned faculty, Nobel prize winners, and advancements in the world of science and technology. The film "Real Genius (1985)" was a not-so-subtle take on Caltech life. To the casual fan, the team might sound like a bad joke. There are more valedictorians on the team than players with high school basketball experience. In fact, the 5 seniors did not play high school basketball, yet all five are major contributors to the team. They are roundly mocked by opposing fans as "nerds playing basketball" (the few fans ...

A solid, entertaining documentary
18 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a good film, which shows the demands of high academic performance coupled with the challenges of competing in college athletics. It captures the heart and spirit of the Caltech men's basketball team, and also shows a little of the history of Caltech and its athletic programs.

One person described the film as heartwarming and heartbreaking, and I agree. Coach Roy Dow shows tremendous skill and commitment as he works with the players, and other coaches in his conference tell of their admiration of his commitment and performance.

The climactic game in the film, against Whittier College couldn't have been scripted to be any more exciting.

This film is like a cross between Real Genius and Hoosiers.
