Charming Davidson College - a true-life Division I college that only has 1,600 students, and yet they compete against basketball powerhouses like North Carolina, Duke, and UCLA. A beautiful campus, a charming, old-fashioned town, and a passionate basketball history provide the rich backdrop to this story.

Late in the Season is a heartfelt, inspirational story in the tradition of The Blind Side, Hoosiers and The Rookie.

Producers Matt Morris and Mark Downie of Battery Park Entertainment are excited about this against-all-odds story of hope and the dream of a second chance, and will share their steady hand in guiding every facet of this remarkable project to the screen.
