Tech's dream is to play basketball, but he isn't quite right for the NBA and he can't play college ball since he served tim in his senior year and is studying for the GED. Instead, he plays the occasional game in an abandoned Detroit train station and hustles players all around the city with his friend Up for quick cash. Meanwhile, his best buddy, Cruise, is a talented player who has been sweet-talked by agents and left with nothing- except the realization that education is everything. He's counting on a basketball scholarship to a California university and a career in medicine- rather than this ball-playing ability- as the key to his future. Life becomes more complicated when Cruise repays a favor to Tech and put his scholarship at risk by playing streetball on his pal's team in a game arranged by Vaughn, a former sports agent. Amazed by what he sees in the court, Vaughn is soon trying to woo Cruise with NBA promises, much to the delight of his new girlfriend, Vanessa, who can only see dollar sighns. When the unthinkable happens, Cruise and Tech learn that they are not that differant after all and that their friendship can withstand anything. Director Preston A.
