This upcoming feature-length documentary is about the 1988 Arizona Wildcats basketball team, and that program’s unlikely and fantastic rise under former head coach Lute Olson.
Great things have great beginnings. The ’88 team boasted talent the likes of which has rarely been equaled in the annals of college basketball. With stars like Sean Elliott and Steve Kerr leading the way, and a bunch of the rowdiest “Gumbies” sports fans have ever seen, the ’88 Cats made Arizona known to the nation, and started an all-out revolution in Tucson, Arizona.
’88 tells the origin story of a dynasty, a program, and a culture. Our hope is that sports fans everywhere will be able to relate to what the ’88 squad accomplished for The U of A, Tucson, the state of Arizona, and the resurgence of West Coast basketball.
