Continuity mistake: In the first act, two of the seven Hoosiers leave the team after Hackman takes over as coach. Shortly after, one of the players reluctantly returns, bringing the total to six. The seventh member, "Buddy," is never shown returning, yet halfway through the film you start seeing him again in the games.
Continuity mistake: During the game against the Wildcats (the orange team) the incorrect score is often seen in the background. For example, the score changes from 50-51 to 36-36. This happens several times throughout the game.
