LOS ANGELES, April 8 (UPI) --
Forty percent of the thousands of people who participated in a Moviefone poll chose "Hoosiers" as their favorite Hollywood basketball film of all time.
The 1986 movie starred Gene Hackman and Dennis Hopper, and was inspired by the real-life story of a small-town high school football team that went on to win the Indiana state championship.
Coming in at No. 2 on the Moviefone survey was "White Men Can't Jump" with 13 percent of the vote. "Love & Basketball" took the third spot with 9 percent of the vote, while "Glory Road" the fourth spot with 8 percent and "Coach Carter" the fifth spot with 7 percent.
Also included in the top 10 were "Space Jam," "He Got Game," "Above the Rim," "Hoop Dreams" and "Blue Chips."
