"...[Fredro Starr's] love-hate dynamic with Perlman energizes the film..."
In dire need of money, Phyllis Saroka, a white female with absolutely NO knowledge of basketball, takes a job at an inner city high school as a B-ball coach. Understandably, her black, highly unmotivated players are skeptical of Phyllis's abilities. But as Phyllis learns more about the game, and more about the kids, she gets involved in their lives, helping them through personal crises.
A bond develops between the coach and the players, who soon begin to take the game more seriously, and perform better on the court. Can Phyllis and her re-charged team win the championship'
