Glory Road - quick review

This was a pretty entertaining film about Texas Western's season of making NCAA history by fielding a predominantly black roster of players in a time where that just wasn't done, and going on to face the University of Kenucky in the NCAA basketball championship game.

Josh Lucas does a good job as Don Haskins, the newly hired coach for Texas Western and facing a slew of hurdles (mainly a budget for recruiting, and getting good players to want to come to a college known for football than basketball). The new recruits have their own personalities and quirks, and show some heart in the face of constant prejudice-related harrassment.

My audience got really involved in the film, even applauding when pivotal baskets were scored, and by the time the credits were shown, much applause was expressed by the entertained audience, too.

(I have no idea why the make-up folks decided to make Jon Voight, playing Kentucky's Coach Rupp, look like a Ferengi.)

I give it 3.5 stars, or a grade of B+.
