Rise of the Phoenix
Coach TJ Stonewall established the Lady Phoenix Basketball Program as a way to help young female student athletes with their pursuit to reach their athletic goals and higher education. He had no idea that there were coaches out there who want to win at all costs, and who will try to draw the most talented players away from other programs with material things and promises of fame. While TJ struggles to put an end to illegal recruiting and misuse of funds by other ball clubs, he must contend with troubles of his own, including a player who runs away from home when her mother finds sexually explicit pictures of her, another wayward player with a bad attitude, and a highly skilled player who has lost focus on her academic responsibilities. On top of all that, TJ is a newlywed and must learn how to take care of his wife, who he has waited all his life for.Rise of the Phoenix goes behind the scenes of New York's summer leagues and into the lives of some of the city's most well known players and coaches.
