Every player wants to win...every high school wants to root for a winning team

Will the new coach for the girls' basketball team change Riverbrook High's losing reputation? Coach Olivia Remmington chooses five starters to lead the racially-diverse team to victory. Her selections shock many. The starters are wheels-for-feet Chase; out-think-other team Marley; play-like-a-boy Tequila; three-pointer Selena; and dazzle-dribbler Bailey. Their team mates have formidable basketball skills.

But will it make difference when their personal lives can be a TV series or Lifetime movie?

They love basketball, but the girls have more than the challenges of high-pressure games. They cope with family, dating, romance, grades, peer pressure and more...haters, frienemies, non-supportive parents and other distractions.

The coach uses the motto "Expect the unexpected" to mentally prepare the team for games. The motto mysteriously applies to the players' personal lives as each player most cope with unexpected events in their personal lives that happen during the basketball season.

Robin Allen has interwoven characters and events in this realistic portrayal of teen girls who play high school sports.

Once the season begins, there is no turning back...
