Though Peewee Carson had starred on a midget league team in the city, he was really too small to make the high school basketball team in the upstate town to which he and his family had just moved. However, the school enrollment was not large and because the team needed every possible player Peewee got his chance. That was all he needed. Before long it was obvious that, though pint-sized, his speed and team spirit made him a worthy opponent to larger players.

In a series of fast, trigger-tense games they reached the playoff—the peak of every team's ambition.
