Hoopers is about a Black youth who wants to live the basketball dream of fame and acclaim. Jojo and his friends know that once they make their high-school team, they will have the time of their lives. But their no-nonsense coach is strict, even mean, and seems to repeatedly target Jojo.

Emphasizing the real qualities of hard work and dedication, Hoopers shows how Jojo learns how to be a skilled player and leader for his team--a real Hooper.
