Movie Description

Don Haskins (Josh Lucas) was the basketball coach at a small school, Texas Western. Thanks to one remarkable season, the school left an indelible mark on sports - and American - history. In the segregated world of the mid-1960s, Haskins set out to field the best team he could, regardless of his player's skin color. As a result, the 1965-66 edition of his Texas Western Miners team featured the first all-African-American starting five in history. The team overcame skepticism, mockery, and outright hatred, and put together a season for the ages. Glory Road is the inspiring true-life story of that team, which saw its season conclude with an improbable win over traditional NCAA basketball powerhouse Kentucky in the 1966 championship game.
