  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
In 1962, integrated basketball teams in the South were unheard of, and a mainly all-black team making it to the NCAA Championship game four years later was, well, even more unheard of. But that is exactly what Don Haskins (Lucas) did as head coach at Texas Western University.

Based on a true story. (Jack Kelley)
