Synopsis

Monica (Sanaa Lathan) and Quincy (Omar Epps) have lived next door to each other since childhood. They have one thing in common – both are basketball enthusiasts. They eat, breath and sleep the game. And both are very good players. The film follows their lives as they face difficulties and romance.

Dove Review

“Love and Basketball” is a perceptive look at the struggle between men and woman wishing to find romance, yet so involved in their personal goals that they are unwilling to compromise for each other. The sexual activity and profane language make it impossible for me to recommend for family viewing.
