St. Anthony High School, an inner-city Catholic school, relies on Coach Hurley and the national following of its basketball program to keep its doors open.

The Street Stops Here, airing Wednesday, March 31 at 10 p.m. on WXXI- TV (DT 21.1/cable 1011 and 11), is a portrait of one of the most successful basketball coaches at any level, Bob Hurley Sr., and his career-long struggle to inspire and motivate his young and impressionable players. St. Anthony High School, an inner-city Catholic school, relies on Coach Hurley and the national following of its basketball program to keep its doors open. The chronicles weaves together stories of teenagers fighting to get out of underprivileged neighborhoods, fundraising amidst the collapse of Wall Street and how one man uses basketball to teach life lessons.

With NCAA college basketball stars among its alumni, the St. Anthony basketball program has touched many of the most revered coaches and players in the game. Some of basketball’s most renowned names — including Duke basketball coach and coach of USA Basketball’s gold medal-winning 2008 Olympic team Mike Krzyzewski; North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams; Hurley’s oldest son, former Duke star and NBA player Bobby Hurley; and Hall of Fame high school coaching legend Morgan Wootten — offer insights.
