Regarding the posts about the video "In the Game" about the NCAA national champs
from Stanford Univ., we ordered our copy from:

Smith Distribution
P.O. Box 1638
Coos Bay, Oregon 97420-0036
customer svc. # 800-332-2039

We ordered our copy in June '95 and they shipped the tape soon after our order
was faxed (the same # for phone and fax - just follow the directions after the
message). The producer's sister is handling the distribution.

Good luck acquiring this tape. It is a real motivator and eye opener that
chronicles the trials of the women's basketball team from Stanford Univ. as they
train for and win the national title. A teacher's guide is also available (and
even contains a quote from a former professor at Roanoke College on the cover!)

Original message(s)

We ordered this tape last August after seeing a review in The
Video Rating Guide for Libraries. We ordered it from Smith
Productions, 4450 11th Avenue, NE, Seattle, WA 98105. However,
the order was cancelled, not available, in September. The Indiana
University campus in Indianapolis owns the tape and may have found
another distributor. Or they may have acquired it before it
became "unavailable." I would still like to find this title, so
please post any responses to your query to the list. If no one
else knows of a current distributor, I will call the library in
Indianapolis and see where they found it.

A patron is looking for a video about the Stanford Women's Basketball
Team and their attempt to win a national championship. It's called "In
the Game" (c1994) and is from Smith Productions, Coos Bay, Oregon. Does
anyone know of a distributor for this video? Thanks for the help.
