Lightbulb Glory Road is a great & true basketball movie!

Glory Road is a great basketball movie based on fact. It's about a first-time college coach at a poor, small Texas division-one school who recruits seven black basketball players in 1966 because top white players were going to the wealthy big schools.

At a time when black players were regarded as being mentally and physically inferior to white athletes, this white coach who last coached girl's high-school basketball takes his all-black team to the NCAA finals where they face the all-white Powerhouse Kentucky Wildcats led by their two all-stars and future NBA pros, Pat Riley and Louis Dampier.

The movie is much more than an entertaining film about basketball and becoming winners. It's also a historical recount of how his players overcame prejudice and discrimination in the racially charged south to earn respect. This racially well-balanced movie also portrays the plight of white players, a coach and his family who are subject to reverse discrimination and hate because of their support for the black players. Don't miss this terrific movie that's now on pay-per-view!

Have you seen this movie? And what do you think of it?
