Hoosiers (1986)

Ending / spoiler

(0 votes)

The state championship game is tied at 40, and Coach Dale calls a timeout. He designs a play for Merle to take the last shot, but as the timeout ends, the players refuse to leave the huddle. Jimmy finally says, "I'll make it." Coach Dale then redraws the play for Jimmy to take the last shot, which is what the team wanted all along. He makes it, and everyone cheers, including Shooter, who jumps up and down on his hospital bed. The movie ends with a little kid shooting in the empty Hickory gym, with a voiceover of some of Coach Dale's comments throughout the season, as the camera zooms in on the team picture from the championship season.
