New York Times - 04/27/2007
"Short, sweet and sentimental....SOMETHING TO CHEER ABOUT plays tribute to a time when basketball scholarships and professional opportunities were practically unknown."

Product Description:

This crowd-pleasing documentary celebrates the accomplishments of Oscar Robertson and the Crispus Attucks Tigers. Led by future NBA MVP Robertson, the Indianapolis high school team challenged racial prejudice in 1950s America. Future Harlem Globetrotter Hallie Bryant and All American Basketball star Willie Meriweather joined Robertson as they pounded the hardwood--and their opponents--along their way to becoming the first all-black team to be state champions in basketball.
