This is a 1986 sports film written by Angelo Pizzo and directed by David Anspaugh. Loosely based on the Milan High School team that won the 1954 state championship, it tells the story of a small-town Indiana high school basketball team that wins the state championship. Gene Hackman plays Norman Dale, a basketball coach whose checked past has led him to a last-chance position with a last-chance team. Although the townspeople nearly have him fired, Dale perseveres with a gritty demeanor and an unwavering passion for coaching. With fast-paced excitement, edge-of-your-seat suspense, breath-taking actions, this is one of the best sports movies.

To be honest, I'm definitely no Basketball fan. No way, Jose. _____ I would've never thought that I'd actually enjoy watching Hoosiers as much as I did. But I did. I sure did. In fact, I even viewed it for a 2nd time._____ I think that a big part of Hoosiers' appeal is that its story is based (loosely) on actual events that surrounded a real Basketball Championship set back in 1956. This championship involved highschool teams in the state of Indiana. It seems that back in the 1950s even highschool basketball was taken very, very seriously._____ To be sure, there were some absolutely exhilarating moments in Hoosiers. I got caught up in a lot of it, myself. I actually found myself cheering for The Hickory Huskers when they finally began to play "real" basketball and beat the pants off of their opponents._____ *Special Note* - For anyone who's interested in reading the real story that inspired Hoosiers, then check out Greg Guffey's well-researched book called "The Greatest Basketball Story Ever Told". Believe me, it's a worthwhile read and it contains an excellent photo section, showcasing the real team that made Indiana Basketball History. VPL has a copy.
