Brief Synopsis

Just as college basketball star Antoine Tyler is about to realize his dream of making it to the NCAA Championships, he dies, leaving his brother Kenny to lead the perenially last place Washington Huskies to victory. Heartbroken, Kenny loses his drive to win until Antoine''s ghost appears, determined to take his team from worst to first. Although nobody except Kenny can see or hear Antoine''s wise-cracking, prankster ghost, sports reporter R.C. St. John is determined to discover the reason behind the miraculous comeback the Huskies make following the slump that was triggered by Antoine''s death. As the team dribbles and slam dunks its way to the championship, the outcome is both comedic and heartfelt as Kenny comes to realize he must ask "the 6th man" to leave the team so he and his teammates can play fair and square.
