The film chronicles their intertwining lives over a decade, as they grow from childhood to high school, then move on to college and finally chase their respective dreams. Along the way, they both must cope with individual trials, disappointments, and their ever-present attraction toward each other both on and off the court.

* MrFanservice: Quincy, especially when he wears those little shorts. Lampshaded by one of Monica's classmates: "Look at that booty. I could just lick the sweat off it." He takes his shirt off a lot too, and he's pretty ripped.
