When a basketball team's star forward loses his confidence, he has to learn how to think like a winner again.
Brett Carter, the Wildcats' star forward, plays to win. Brett likes being the best at whatever he does. However, his confidence is shaken when he misses a routine layup during an important game and his team loses. Now every time he is on the court, his heart starts pounding and he feels something he has never experienced before: fear. When his coach tells Brett about well-known players from the past who made successful comebacks after disappointing performances, Brett realizes he can overcome his nervousness. But is it too late to save the Wildcats' season?
