In 1966, Texas Western coach Don Haskins led the first all-black starting line-up for a college basketball team to the NCAA national championship.

Coach Don Haskins: [recruiting] Brother, without a little work I don't think you can get past an old-timer like me.
Orsten Artis: Get past you... I will go past you, through you, over you, under you, around you. As a matter of fact I will spin you like a top, twist you in a pretzel, eat your lunch, steal your girl and kick your dog at the same time... pshh, get past you.
Coach Don Haskins: Jason, Don Haskins, Texas Western.
Stevens: Western Union?
Coach Don Haskins: Texas Western down in El Paso. Hey, after the game, when you get a minute I'd like to talk to you about playing for me.
Stevens: Play for you at Texas Western? Thanks, Coach, but I'm partial to winning.
Coach Don Haskins: You'll play basketball my way. My way is hard.
Willie 'Scoops' Cager: They're trying to take our dignity away from us.
Coach Don Haskins: Your dignity's inside you. Nobody can take something away from you you don't give them.
Coach Don Haskins: Hey, hey, Winnaker, Winnaker, do you want me to get you a skirt? I'll get you a skirt if you keep playing like a girl!
Cafeteria Worker: Taco? Nacho? Burrito?

Adolph Rupp: [to Pat Riley] That's what happens when you don't talk to each other!
Coach Don Haskins: You got a real talent, son, why throw it away?
Bobby Joe Hill: I'll tell you why. Ever since I was a kid I've only loved one thing. That was playing ball. Do you understand what that's like, having that ball in your hand... It's like, It's like making sweet music with your game, only thing is you don't wanna hear the song.
