A new documentary available only on SI TV tracks a pair of blue chip basketball recruits at a small Quaker school in Pennsylvania.
We Town follows the Westtown School boy’s basketball team and its star players Mo Bamba and Cameron Reddish, who chose to play for coach Seth Berger at a school known more for his academics than its basketball program. Other top players include heralded recruits Brandon Randolph, Anthony Ochefu and Jake Forrester.
You can watch the film by signing up for a free seven-day trial now on Amazon Channels. You can watch a trailer for the documentary above.
Both Bamba and Reddish are expected to be NBA lottery picks when they choose to go pro. Bamba was a senior at the school last year and now attends the University of Texas. SI’s Jeremy Woo projects him as a top-five pick in this year’s draft. Reddish is in his senior year of high school and has committed to play at Duke.
“Like most good sports stories, We Town finds its heart on the sidelines, in main character with a capital “C”, Coach Seth Berger,” SI TV vice president of programming Josh Oshinsky said. “But the soul of the film is on the hardwood. While the film does a nice job bouncing back and forth between a linear telling of the Moose’s season and the off the court drama unfolding with the recruitment of Bamba and the Berger family dynamics, it absolutely soars on the court, where these five man-children play the game with a style and flair that you’d expect from an elite college program—or maybe the Phoenix Suns.”
