Tagline: Winning changes everything.

Plot: For Don Haskins, the dream was always about winning: winning with guts, heart and grit; winning with self-respect; and winning even when the odds were completely stacked against you. What Haskins didn’t know in 1966—when he was just a small-town family man trying to make an indelible mark in his first job as a collegiate basketball coach—is that his underdog team’s incredible victory would transcend sport and change not only his life and the lives of his players, but the country itself.

Haskins and his scrappy Texas Western Miners were unwittingly about to revolutionize basketball and the American landscape. It was still a time of innocence in the United States, yet the country was on the verge of major social changes when Haskins decided to play an all-African-American opening lineup at the NCAA championships against the all-white juggernaut of the University of Kentucky Wildcats. Haskins did it to win. But his bold decision would help break down barriers of segregation that affected every segment of society and set a new course for the future as his team did the one thing they could to prove themselves to a watching world: they played their hearts

external link...It is uplifting and there's more meat on the bones than one might suppose from the anemic trailers and previews. Viewers with an appreciation of basketball will get the most out of the film, but there's enough here to keep non-sports aficionados involved and entertained, as well. 3/4

external link...may sound like one of those rote sports films you've seen a hundred times before, but it has its own merits. While it documents a little known, but clearly major milestone in the civil rights movement, newcomer Gartner never forgets the essentials either, keeping the games themselves exciting as much for the individual dramas being played out as that end result on the big scoreboard. B

external linkGlory Road has its share of clichés and is fairly one dimensional character-wise, but nonetheless surprises as an absorbing film. 3.5/5
