A college romance story that you've got to hear about.

Love and Basketball is a classic film that I was always around growing up.  It portrays the story of a boy and girl who grow up playing basketball together and eventually fall in love before they attend college at USC.  Both of them are part of the mens and womens basketball team at SC, and as the story unfolds, things take a turn for the worst when their mutual passion, basketball, gets in the way of their relationship while they are in college when the idea of going pro comes into the story.  The idea of falling in love, finishing college, following your heart, pursuing your ideal career, and seeing your dreams come true combined with all the ways those things can conflict and bash each other are part of the essence of this movie. 

Soundtrack for this movie is real soulful and complimenting with the movie.  Highly recommend it!
