Gar is a high school journalist who covers the basketball team as it heads toward a state championship; when his best friend Matt, the team's star, is asked by a drug dealer to throw the big game, Gar inevitably gets caught in the middle.
While not credited in the movie, much of final basketball game was filmed at Wake Forest University after a real game had been played that evening. This is why there is a lot of black & gold tie-dye (the school colors of Wake Forest, but neither of the teams in the movie) in the crowd shots. There is also one shot of a giant foam brick, with silver tubas in the back corner, that was taken from the actual game that night.
So, how about that interview you still owe me?
Matt: The interview. DID you know... that Gar loves you? My man, Gar, loves you, and he's probably going to be famous someday. Probably the next Hemingway. So think about that.
