"Glory Road" was inspired by a true story of Texas Western's Coach Don Haskins (Josh Lucas), who led the first all-black starting lineup team to the 1966 NCAA national basketball championship title.



Coach Haskins has a lot going against him:



first, Texas Western has a poor basketball program, and



second, he cannot recruit good white players to the team. Coach Haskins goes to Northern cities to recruit talented black players from the streets to play for his team.



The black players must adjust to his coaching, and not play street basketball. Coach Haskins doesn't see color when he evaluates the skill of all of his players, and chooses who plays in the game.



With courage and determination, Coach Haskins changed basketball history, when his underdog team beats the powerhouse Kentucky team. Douglas Young (the-movie-guy)











This is an inspirational movie even which inspired the makers of ChakDe India... many scenes are copied from this movie which includes sharukh character...



A must see movie...
