hoosiers

(One subject… three questions… Can you answer the three questions correctly and complete the TRIPLE PLAY?)

1. In the movie “Hoosiers,” Hickory wins the state championship when Jimmy Chitwood hits a game-winning basket at the buzzer. What was the final score of that state championship game?

2. In the movie “Tin Cup,” Roy “Tin Cup” McAvoy tees off on the 18th hole of the final round with a chance to win the U.S. Open. Instead of playing it safe, McAvoy dumps several shots in the pond short of the green. What score did McAvoy get on that final hole?

3. In the movie “Remember the Titans,” the Titans from T.C. Williams High School win a state football championship. In what state did the Titans win their title?

2. After hitting his tee shot, McAvoy dumped five shots in the pond short of the green and then finally holed a fairway shot to score a 12 on that final hole.
