Hoops, they're doing it again
By John Anderson
San Antonio Express-News
April 10, 2008

I suppose a documentary about whip-smart college athletes trying to snap a losing streak that's spanned 240 games and 21 years could be viewed as some sort of letdown after the wild, Kansas over Memphis finish in the Final Four championship game Monday night.

Hoops is hoops, though, and those who can't get enough of college level action might want to head over to the Alamo Drafthouse Westlakes (1255 SW Loop 410) tonight for "Quantum Hoops."

Writer-director Rick Greenwald's documentary draws down on the California Institute of Technology's basketball team during the final week of the 2006 season. There are more former valedictorians on the team than players with high school basketball experience.

Here's some added incentive. Gregg Popovich, Spurs head coach, will be there. Perhaps not in person (although it is an off night for the Silver and Black), but up on screen. Look for Pop to pop up in the film.

"Quantum Hoops" tips off at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. General admission tickets are $8.50.
