You'll meet Bill Resler, the tax professor turned hard-driving unorthodox coach who turns the team around and Darnellia Russell, the talented inner-city tough girl who battles off-court threats to regain eligibility. You'll meet a real team full of drive, toughness and the unbridled desire to make history."
