The Mighty Macs - A Lesson in Trust and Women's Sports History

We went out to the movies this evening and saw The Mighty Macs, a movie about girls basketball at a small Catholic college in the early 1970s. The movie is infused with a touch of the spirit of both Mona Lisa Smile and Glory Road. Girls basketball had only recently become a full court game and Title IX had not yet emerged to raise up girls sports. We enjoyed the film. A graduate of Immaculata University, the current home of the Mighty Macs, approached us after the show and we had a lovely chat. The movie is showing at Monmouth Mall.
