College hoops are in full swing—unexpected crazy upsets and all (nice work, Harvard and Florida Gulf Coast!). We’re big lovers of the NCAA insanity, but on the off chance that you prefer your basketball in a more narrative format, we’ve rounded up our all-time favorite b-ball flicks so you can enjoy the courtside drama sans whistles and chaos. Nothing’s quite as great on a lazy weekend as watching good sportsmanship and courage overcome everything in a great sports film.
1. Hoosiers: This movie is the ultimate underdog tale, featuring the iconic Gene Hackman as a new coach in a small town who teaches his players the value of teamwork. Dennis Hopper also makes an appearance as Hackman’s alcoholic assistant coach who needs some life coaching for himself. Who doesn’t love this rousing flick? Also, fun fact: You can thank this timeless film for the creation of the slow clap. Mind-blowing, right?
