Kim Klement/US PresswireJunior guard Mike Rosario is averaging 7.9 points in his first season at Florida.
A 2010 documentary that chronicled a season with a legendary New Jersey high school basketball program will return to the spotlight this weekend. An updated version of "The Street Stops Here" along with a post-film roundtable with Hall of Fame coach Bob Hurley Sr., will air at 8 p.m. ET Sunday on ESPNU. That St. Anthony team featured Florida Gators shooting guard Mike Rosario.

Despite possessing seven Division I-bound seniors -- Rosario, Madut Bol, Jio Fontan, Tyshawn Taylor, AJ Rogers, Alberto Estwick and Travon Woodall -- the 2007-08 squad was in danger of becoming Hurley's first class to graduate without a state crown. What's more, a financial crisis threatened to shut down St. Anthony.

Much to Hurley's satisfaction, this unscripted drama ended up reinforcing the message he constantly imparts upon his players. Without discipline and goals, success in sports can be hard to come by. Without academics, everything done on the court ultimately won't matter.
