Darford College is renowned for its academic record but not for its abysmal athletics program, as the college's President Stanhope refuses to lower the college's academic requirements just to pander to sports stars. He even refuses to pander to the Board of Trustees who give him an ultimatum of improving the sports programs or be fired. Wanting to help her father, Marge Stanhope, with a little help from her friend Johnny Morton, believes she, using her feminine wiles, can save her father's job by luring star basketball player Larry Howard to Darford. Beyond Larry wanting or not wanting to attend Darford, Marge faces other obstacles in achieving her goal including Larry not having the academic requirements to enter Darford, and Larry's father, philanthropist Horace Howard, who wants Larry given an "easy ride" academically or else play for Darford's rival, Lorimer College.
