He's the only thing I really enjoy about that movie. I'll never understand why it's heralded as such a classic. I go to school in Indiana, and I'm an enormous basketball fan, but there's just no way that's a good movie. Sorry, it's a generic "small town school starts winning when they buy into the system of a tough coach" movie, and worse, the last team they face is the only time they've encountered blacks, and they're all menacing and mute, and the white boys prevail over them after great struggle, and that gives the film some seriously misguided racial undertones.

Hopper's good though.
