A good movie

About basketball (22 movies items)

" What's a Hoosier ? An Indiana native or resident. James Naismith in 1891 invented the sport of basketball in Massachusetts...:-)...anyway the cult had the major of followers in the state of Indiana, Sycamores, Boilermakers, Fighting Irish, Hoosiers Dome and the Hick from French Lick... Based on a true story the movie is quite epic, with a good cast, but lacks of good basketball scenes, you don't need to be of the Orange Ball Cult to like this movie."
