Trivia
This was Duncan MacGregor's last film as a gaffer. The movie was dedicated to the memory of him.

Shawn Wayans was considered for the role of Antoine Tyler. If he would have gotten the part, he would have portrayed his real life brother, Marlon.

Goofs
When Antoine is a kid shooting in the street he is right handed, but when he is an adult he is left handed.

When UW advances to the West Regional in Oakland, Antoine and Kenny are shown talking outside the arena and ultimately begin tussling. The shots of them together are clearly on location, on the bare concrete plaza between the outdoor Oakland Coliseum stadium and the indoor arena. But when Kenny is shown alone, seemingly acting crazy with his ghostly brother not visible, the shot comes from the opposite angle and is obviously from a location shot in the Northwest, with lush greenery behind the opposing cheerleaders warming up on a lawn that is not part of the Coliseum complex.

In the Fresno State game, there are several shots of the players taken from the ground level. The ceiling above is that of the old Hec-Edmunson Pavilion at the University of Washington. At one point you can even read the name Huskies on the scoreboard signs. Then as the game progresses, the ceiling is shown again, and it is that of the arena in California.
