Ryan Parker is the head coach of a small college basketball program located in downtown Milwaukee. He and his players, a roster made up solely of engineering nerds, are poised on the brink of having an amazing season. And they can sense it.
Unfortunately, standing in their way is Parker’s former assistant and long time nemesis, Chris Gilpatrick. “Gilly” is now the head coach of small power, UW-Pardeeville, and on a quest for a second straight national championship.
A colorful cast of characters surrounds Parker, including Dave Madden, his profane assistant coach who keeps Parker on track and focused, Joel Remington, the quiet point guard who lets his play do the talking, Tom Oakley, the gentle giant, who’s never full just less hungry, Craig Phillips, the ladies’ man, and Ronnie Norris, the coed who is the love interest in Parker’s life.
Journey with them as they navigate the twists and turns of a long season, made longer by the college’s inept Athletic Director, their numerous road trips, the intense classroom demands and the rival coaches and teams from their conference.
The question is, can a group of Hoop Dweebs, overcome these many obstacles and still compete for a national championship?
