SYNOPSIS
"Glory Road," from Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films, is based on the inspiring true story of the underdog Texas Western basketball team whose drive to win superceded some of the most bruising and difficult challenges during a point in U.S. history of massive cultural and philosophical turmoil. It was a time when, against all odds, the first all African American starting lineup of players took the country by storm and, in a surprise turn of events, won the 1966 NCAA tournament title. Josh Lucas stars as Hall of Famer Don Haskins, the passionately dedicated college basketball coach that changed the history of basketball and, in turn, helped change the course of history. The film is directed by James Gartner, written by Christopher Cleveland & Bettina Gilois.

One of the better “Sports” films

I attended the movie with my 15 year old daughter and we were both looking forward to the movie, but it exceeded both our expectations.

I couldn’t think of a better way to spend Martin Luther King, Junior's Birthday than going to see the film Glory Road. What an experience to share with my family and a packed movie theater. Especially in the heart of basketball country, Kansas.

Divine Providence?

Changing Everything
Before we went out under those ubiquitous Friday night lights every fall weekend for three years, Coach Mike Huard (yes, that Huard) played the soundtrack to Patton. Every Friday night, football drilled into us that the Bulldogs were Americans, and that Americans play to win, all the time. Coach Huard was desperately trying to turn the Bulldogs into winners.

This picture is a classic underdog-wins-it-all story. (And no, I'm not giving away the end, since this actually happened.) Yet despite knowing the outcome, Glory Road is a film well worth seeing—one that I will probably end up owning as it portrays the gritty self-assurance that can lead to winning more than basketball games.

The Road to the Final Four is one of my favorite yearly events: watching college basketball from November to April is the best! Thanks to the wonders of cinematography, watching Glory Road makes the viewer feel like they’re watching March Madness, with the inside profiles of the 1965-66 Texas Western team but without the annoying voice of Billy Packer!

File GLORY ROAD in the “good sports movie” category. It’s loaded with energy and left me very euphoric. This film is based on the true story of the 1966 NCAA champion Texas Western University college basketball team.
