Pedro Morales loves playing basketball, but he's more of a team guy than a star - that would be Ned Hancock, the best player in their entire town.

The election starts to affect their team, and Pedro learns who his real friends are and the best way to work together on and off the court.

The epitome of a point guard, he plays the game to set up his teammatesaNed, in particular, the star forward on the receiving end of Pedroas pinpoint passes. Pedro wants to make his father proud, and so he runs for class president. Yet doing so means going one-on-one against Ned, easily the most popular boy in school. And Pedro learns the hard way that being a good teammate doesnat mean that others will return the favor. Now Pedro wants to win more than everabut this time, itas for himself.
