Hired to coach the women's basketball team at Immaculata College in 1971, Cathy Rush encounters challenges as imposing as the big-school teams her girls will face. There's no gym, fans, or money! But with the help of Sister Sunday---her spunky assistant coach---and a group of elderly nuns, can she spur her ragtag team to unexpected heights? Dove approved. Rated G. Approx. 98 minutes.

I liked this film for the most part, probably because it was based on a true story. I don't have much to add to the other comments made by people who enjoyed it. After seeing the movie, I read an article that mentioned this school. It was a current news story and having just seen the film, it made the news story more interesting.
This was a very good movie for teens and adults. I lived through this time period but never knew about this school or team. Loved that they talked to the original people and showed original footage at the end of the movie. Also is great to hear that the school is still going.
