From beginning to end, "Morningside 5," a 25-year journey into the lives of the starters from the 1992-93 Inglewood Morningside High basketball team, offers surprise, heartbreak, drama, disappointment, anger, inspiration and hope.
Set to be shown on
on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., the 90-minute presentation from the ESPN Films group is narrated and directed by Mike Tollin, who put together the original documentary in 1993 entitled "Hardwood Dreams."
The team's star player was Stais Boseman, one of Southern California's best two-way athletes of the 1990s. Morningside was coming off a state title in 1992.
For someone who has covered high school sports in Southern California for more than 40 years, it's always intriguing to learn what happened to the the so-called "can't-miss" prospects once they left the prep ranks.
