The Rumors Might Be True – Rez Ball coming to HBO Sports
Both Native News Online and Navajo Times are reporting that HBO Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel are hoping to film footage for an upcoming episode on the popular sports show which would focus on basketball on the reservation or “Rez ball” as we lovingly call it. According to a press release from the Oglala Sioux Tribe, OST President Bryan Brewer was interviewed via telephone, by Jason Samuels, Senior Segment Producer for HBO Real Sports. Samuels expressed interest in going out to the Pine Ridge reservation to film basketball games between some of the local schools during the Region 8 playoffs. Producers from HBO Real Sports also reached out to Shiprock High School in New Mexico to see if they could film during the Lady Chieftains game.
Last year MaxPreps High School Sports (CBSSports) featured this short video and story about Rez Ball on their website.
Are there any other schools you’d like to see featured on the HBO show?
