Quantum Hoops: The Caltech Basketball Story

Rated NR 2008

Despite Caltech basketball's 21-year, 240-game division losing streak, players, coaches, and alumni remain surprisingly high on hope and low on gloom. Basketball is not a priority here, after all, and if we can learn anything from the school's many Nobel Prize-winning faculty, it's that some of the greatest accomplishments arrive at the end of a lifetime of work. Through historical and documentary footage, insightful interviews, and the effective narration of David Duchovny, Rick Greenwald's feature-length debut relates the improbable, powerful tale of the world's smartest and statistically poorest basketball team, which consistently fields more high school valedictorians than athletes, but plays with as much heart -- and at times, greatness -- as any of its Division III rivals. The very real ending and emotional climax comes at the final game of the 2006 season, but we won't tell you what happens (85 min., 2008).
