The award winning documentary "They Could Really Play the Game: Reloaded" revisits one of the greatest stories in American sports history.

Bevo Francis, the team's star, scored 113 points in a single college game, an NCAA record for almost 60 years.
For the first time, viewers will hear the story from the coach and players who lived it. They describe the physical and mental challenges, the prejudice and discrimination their basketball team overcame to survive and win. It was a road this team traveled not once, but twice.
