Running Time: 113 minutes

This film from 20th Century Studios is premiering Friday, March 17 exclusively on Hulu.

Drive-ins would allow families to drive and park under the stars to watch a film.

Team prepares for state basketball

Daliyah Morris takes a deep breath before lining up for a free shot. She knows she has to remain calm and not let the crowd’s cheers distract her. She shoots, she scores, helping the Lady Bengals increase their lead in the Division Championship game against the Kirtland Central Lady Broncos. The Lady Bengals won the Feb. 25 game 54-46, punching their ticket to the first round of the State Championship, which took place March 3.

Staying calm was one of the key portions of the girls’ strategy. Morris, a senior, bases her strategy off a saying she learned from her grandfather: “moving like water.”

“You need to be like water for a lot of...
