'Sport-mad Patty Mills is a star on the footy field, an ace at athletics, a ripper at rugby.
So when he tries out for basketball, it should be a breeze . . .
Patty expects to be a great basketballer straight away, just like his uncle Danny. But he soon discovers there's whole lot more to the game than just shooting hoops.
He's got a lot to learn, on and off the court - and it's going to take plenty of practice.
Will he and his school team be good enough to get into the finals?' (Synopsis)
