THE STORY: Thanks to the phenomenal success of its basketball team Custer College has suddenly sprung into national prominence. Alumni contributions have tripled, the building program is in high gear and academic standards have been raised—largely because of star center, Ray Blent, a science major who has worked out a mathematical formula which allows him to sink basket after basket with unfailing precision. On the eve of the big game with arch rival Ashmore College, however, Ray is distracted by a thorny personal problem. He is desperately anxious to marry co-ed June Ryder but lacks the necessary funds, or at least he does until he receives a mysterious phone call asking him to throw the Ashmore game. Knowing he doesn’t have the heart to betray his teammates, Ray devises a hilarious scheme which will solve all his problems, on and off the court.
