She was a rising basketball star in her small town high school. “Good enough,” as the local paper suggested,” to play on the boys team.” But there were pressures no one knew about and when it all got to be too much, Jane Pittman ran off the court and never played basketball again … until now At 57, Jane stumbles across the NOVA United Senior Women’s Basketball Association and rediscovers the old passion. “Coming Back To The Hoop” is a film about the transformative power of basketball in the lives of senior women who have decided they’d rather wear out than rust out.
