Special Order—Subject to Availability

The Story of Roundballers is about young men who saw the world as it was and set about to remake it as it should be. It all started from a rural Alabama basketball court to the Olympics and to the NCAA college championship. It is about the people who made it all happen. This is a story of young men who wanted just to play the game they loved and teach others the game that could and would change the world.

It tells of their fight to bring change to the way of life in the South-a way of life that said they could not play the game that they loved and saw their game as a threat to things as they always were. It is about the small college that took a gamble on the young black ballplayers when no one else did and how they blazed a trail across college basketball that changed the game forever and the world as well.
