Hoosiers - Where'd They Come From?
Remember the part early into the season, where Coach sends Buddy and that other lunky kid home for talking, leaving him with only 5 players? Well, those 5 players get practicing, and they somehow majically create a sixth player. Watch when they're running their drills (ball handling) and you'll see that there are too many players.
Also, late into the playoffs, Buddy steals a ball and then stands up to call time out, but then in the close up, it's Red (I think his name was Red) who calls it. That Buddy is a great passer!

The posts so far are all incorrect. At Coach Dale's first practice, there were seven players (counting Ollie, the manager). Coach threw two off the team for mouthing off. Later that same practice, Whit returned with his Dad, Paul Butcher. Whit asked for reinstatement and Coach granted it. Buddy, the other player who was thrown off, mysteriously reappeared in time for the first game. The writer, Angelo Pizzo, said years later in an interview that a key scene showing Buddy's reinstatement was cut by the studio to shorten the movie. Later in the season, you can spot three players on the bench for a total of eight players. That is accurate, because Jimmy Chitwood joined the team. As for the stolen ball and timeout, Buddy and Ray Butcher (Whit's brother) double-teamed the opposing player and Ray came up with the ball and called timeout. If you want a real slip-up, check out the shots Jimmy Chitwood makes in the semi-final game. They the same jumper from the left corner three times from different angles as though it was three different shots.

You didn't watch the whole movie did you? One of the two guys who got sent home later apologized to the coach about it and the coach let him back on.

The six player passing drill happens before they come back and ask for forgiveness to get back on the team.
