Here is the plot description for “The Mighty Macs”:
“The Mighty Macs” is based on the incredible true story of the 1971 to 1972 Immaculata College team that started in obscurity but became the original Cinderella story in women’s basketball. This team of trailblazers went from barely making that inaugural tournament to the first dynasty in their game.
And Cathy Rush, the woman who was ahead of her time, became immortalized when she was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2008. “The Mighty Macs” stars Carla Gugino as Cathy Rush; David Boreanaz as her husband, NBA referee Ed Rush; Marley Shelton as the young assistant coach, Sister Sunday; and Academy Award, Emmy Award and Tony Award winner Ellen Burstyn as Mother St. John.
