- Synopsis / Plot
- Coach Roy (MARTIN LAWRENCE) once was college basketball's top mastermind. But lately his attentions have been on his next endorsements, not on his next game. What's more, Roy's temper has run amuck, leading to his being banned from college ball until he can "demonstrate compliance" – in other words, not explode every time he walks onto the court.
Roy waits – and waits – for a suitable coaching offer, but he receives only one: a hastily scribbled fax from… members of the Mount Vernon Junior High School "Smelters" basketball squad. Roy reluctantly accepts the "offer," hoping that a few weeks at the school will prove his good intentions and restore him to his high-living ways as a celebrated college coach.
But when "old school" meets "middle school," Coach Roy doesn't know what hit him. That is, until Roy decides to teach his young charges some new concepts… like passing, rebounding, dribbling, and scoring. As Roy's coaching magic takes the Smelters to a new place – the winning side of the scoreboard – he finds something long thought lost: his love of the game.
