Eighth-grade basketball player Richie Mallon is known as “the shooter,” the one on the team who scores most of the baskets. He has practiced every day at his driveway hoop, perfecting his technique. Richie never plays any other roles on the court; he lets his teammates do the assisting and rebounding. Richie makes the team under a tough new coach, but he’s not a starter. Then when his shooting skills go into a slump, he must find a way to become a more well-rounded player.
