Synopsis


Glory Road
A true-life story of a basketball team who broke down barriers while racking up victories is the basis for this sports drama. Don Haskins (Josh Lucas) was a high school and college basketball star who, after six years of working with high school teams, became the head coach at Texas Western University in 1962. At that time, Texas Western's basketball program was not well respected, but Haskins was determined to change that, and in 1966 Haskins assembled what he was certain was a winning team. However, Haskins' starting lineup was comprised entirely of African-American athletes at a time when racially integrated teams were still a novelty in the South and West. Despite generating a firestorm of controversy, Haskins and his players showed they could succeed where it counted -- on the court. In post-season play Haskins and the Texas Western team found themselves competing for the NCAA championship against the University of Kentucky's all-white team, lead by legendary coach Adolph Rupp (Jon Voight). Glory Road also stars Derek Luke, Alphonso McAuley, Mehcad Brooks, Al Shearer, Damaine Radcliff, Sam Jones III, and Schin S. Kerr as members of Haskins' winning team. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Fast Pace Basketball Movie

    Disney has been coming out with great true-life stories, with one of their first, Remember The Titans and now Glory Road that follows Texas Western (UTEP) team through their historic year. If you loved Remember The Titans, than this is a movie to pick up, but be aware that it doesn't give you that emotional feel that Titans did.

    Good story about basket ball coach Don Haskins and his chance to coach in NCAA and recruits black players for his team. While overcoming the racism in the sixties to win the national championship. Uncompressed audio track.

    This movie was very well done. It was very motivating because the basketball team, which the movie was based off, had to come together and defeat all the odds in order to achieve their goal.

    This is a good movie and a good blu ray. The reality of the situations presented were much more difficult to deal with but that can be expected with a Disney movie.
