Something to Cheer About Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

The first all-black high school basketball team to win a U.S. state championship and the coach who inspired them to always play at the top of their game are profiled in director Betsy Blankenbaker's inspirational documentary. The Crispus Attucks Tigers is a team that helped to get numerous kids off of the streets while raising community morale and breaking down the color barrier in professional sports. Former Crispus Attucks Tigers include such famed sports luminaries as Harlem Globetrotter Hallie Bryant, All American Basketball Player Willie Merriweather, and NBA MVP Oscar Robertson. These are the players that forever changed the face of basketball, and they all got their start by playing for the team that provided hope when it seemed that all had been lost. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
