Players and family lovingly recall Bobby "Slick" Leonard's passion ... and fashion.
Bobby "Slick" Leonard is Indiana basketball. No one better personifies its passion; no one better embodies its toughness. "Heart of a Hoosier" celebrates the man as never before, tracing his rise from a shotgun shack in Depression-era Terre Haute to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. With stunning, never-before-published footage and imagery, and a cast that includes Jerry West, Reggie Miller, Richard Lugar, Mel Daniels, Tommy John and dozens more, the documentary lays out in full Leonard's one-of-a-kind story: a rags-to-riches story that enriched an entire state.
