Dale Wheeler's co-captain of his jr. high basketball team. That's a short season. The real competition is citywide where neighborhoods pull together teams and compete through March. Dale is cheated from his dream of winning all city on his neighborhood team. He has practiced all summer all over the city and knows a gang of other Missourians and overcomes his self-consciousness and asks for a place on their team. The final chapter is the playoff and what a game it is!
