'Heart of the Game' Tracks Girls' Hoop Dreams

A new documentary, The Heart of the Game follows an unconventional girls' high school basketball coach in Washington state and tracks the conflicts that arise over the fate of a star player.

Coach Bill Resler is at the center of the action in a film that offers a parallel... though not an exact one... to Steve James' well-received 1994 documentary Hoop Dreams.

Bob Mondello, who jokes that he was a jinx at the beginning of his critical career — hired to write for every small paper that ever folded in Washington, just as it was about to collapse — saw that jinx broken in 1984 when he came to NPR.
