Summary, etc.: It's 1951 in Hickory, Indiana--a place that takes its basketball as seriously as its religion. Into this tiny town strolls Norman Dale, a once-hailed, now-failed college coach taking up the unenviable task of coaching Hickory High's eight-man hoop squad. Dale has been down on his luck for the last ten years and hopes this could be a fresh start, but several people have something to say about his suspicious training methods and unorthodox bench manner: the school's vice-principal, who is keeping his best player in the classroom; the town drunk, who is ruffling midwestern feathers as the new assistant coach; and Dale's team, who are short on both height and discipline. The school and the town want him fired, but Coach Dale believes in two things: himself and his team. Amazingly, kids become captains, players become a team, losers become winners, and has-beens become once-agains.
