Linda Miles The Season Community NCAA About the Film Tell a Friend
Linda MilesIt was never just basketball.  For over two years, Emmy-winner Peter Schnall and Partisan Pictures journeyed with Rutgers University's women's basketball team, the Scarlet Knights and their legendary coach, C. Vivian Stringer-a survivor, visionary, mother and widow. This film is not just about basketball.  To the young, mostly African-American women on her team, Coach Stringer is a role model and an inspiration, teaching her players the game of life.
