Description by OLDIES.com:

“I have a heart the size of a lion.” -Hank Gathers, The Today Show

By the mid-1980s, Paul Westhead had worn out his welcome in the NBA. The best offer he could find came from an obscure small college with little history of basketball. In the same city where he had won an NBA championship with Magic & Kareem, Westhead was determined to perfect his non-stop run-and-gun offensive system at Loyola Marymount. His shoot-first offense was magic – if you had the right personnel. When Hank Gathers and Bo Kimble, two talented players from Westhead's hometown of Philadelphia, arrived gift-wrapped at his doorstep, Westhead got the talent he needed. With Gathers & Kimble leading a record-scoring charge, Westhead's system suddenly dazzled the world of college basketball and turned conventional thinking on its head. But then, early in the 1989-90 season, Gathers collapsed during a game and was diagnosed with an abnormal heartbeat. Determined to play, Gathers returned three games later, but in less than three months, he tragically died on the court. Working with both Westhead and Kimble, Oscar-winning director Bill Couturié tells a fast-paced and emotionally moving story of innovation, triumph and tragedy.

DVD bonus includes director's statements, extended interviews and a 1990 condensed game featuring LMU vs La Salle.
