An interview with the actual coach who inspired the film.

Basketball may be a way out of the ghetto for some, but an education and self-confidence are the only things that will work for most. Samuel L. Jackson comes to an inner-city high school that's blessed with good athletes who are plagued with bad attitudes and worse GPAs. His task is clear: Instill in each of these young men the character of a winner, regardless of anyone's actual athletic ability. And that may mean benching them at the most crucial moment: when they've made it to the finals undefeated. Based on a true story.

See the music video for Twista (featuring Faith Evans): Hope off the soundtrack.
