Monday, January 9: Glory Road
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – The year that Congress passed the landmark Civil Rights Act, Texas Western Miners basketball coach Don Haskins set out to create the perfect basketball team based solely on talent. He revolutionized not only the sport, but also the American landscape, when his predominately black team became the 1966 NCAA champions. "Glory Road," the directorial debut of James Gartner, follows the team through a pivotal time in the country's history.
