Overview

This book is about the six-player game in Oklahoma, because it was the only basketball for girls at that time. This is a story about girls' basketball and its climb to respectability with other sports that were being played - before the transition to five-on-five.

This is the story of the special situation of a man who wanted to coach boys but who was forced to coach a girls team. He finds the girls to be real competitors and students of the game. He loves it, and he never wants to coach a boys' athletic team again.

This book became the basis for the 2006 movie, "Believe in Me," starring Jeffrey Donovan, Samantha Mathis and Bruce Dern.
