Technically it;s fiction, but more like "based on a true story". Some liberties have been taken with some details and the timeline and the names have changed to protect the guilty, but for anyone familiar with UF's '03 championship team, it is not exactly hard to guess the true identities of Magley's coaches and teammates (e.g. the sub-5 ft Mexican, the black girl that had a baby, or the senior playing out of her depths at #1).
