The Team

The Humber College Hawks are among the top college basketball teams in Canada. In the past 16 years they've won four national championships and seven provincial championships. This year the players and their coach are hoping to add to that list.

Despite their skill - and make no doubt about it, these kids can play - they've left their hoop dreams behind. They know their future depends how they do in the classroom, not how they do on the court.

They may only be in their early 20's but their lives are full of adult complications: with jobs and parental responsibilities that have to be juggled along with basketball and schoolwork. This is their story.
