Jayhawk fans, if you haven't totally soured on basketball for this season, you should check out The Street Stops Here on KCPT tonight at 9.
The Street Stops Here is a look at basketball blessed but financially struggling St. Anthony
High School and tough love coach Bob
The doc's preview says:
This film reveals the coach's life-long struggle to inspire
those around him in order to keep the doors of a poor, inner-city
Catholic school in Jersey City, New Jersey, open. This is also the story
about the teenage athletes fighting their way out of the poverty and
desolation that surrounds them, armed with little more than a basketball
and the hard wisdom of a fierce, demanding coach.
One of those kids is Jayhawk Tyshawn Taylor.
The film's Web site describes Taylor as possessing "the most raw talent
on the abundantly gifted squad. His athleticism helps him overcome
injuries on the court and obstacles in his life as he attempts to
achieve his dream of playing in the NBA."
Our friends at the Topeka
Capital-Journal play spoiler, saying the doc covers Taylor's
senior year at St.
Anthony's, the 2007-08 season when the Friars ran the table, finishing
with a 32-0 record.
If you miss tonight's showing, it airs again
April 1 at 1 a.m. and April 5 at 3 a.m.
