THE DEFINITIVE DOCUMENTARY OF THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF BAYLOR BASKETBALL

An Ode to Joy is the new three-part documentary from filmmaker Chris Charles Scott III. An Ode to Joy follows the Baylor University Men’s Basketball team through eighteen years of the greatest rebuild in college sports—from the death of Patrick Dennehy at the hands of another player in 2003 through the 2021 NCAA National Championship.

“This story is more than rags to riches, more than the underdog, more than tragedy turned to joy,” said Scott, who directed Class Action Park, which debuted in the No. 1spot on HBO Max in the summer of 2020. “I was at Baylor in the summer of 2003 and watched the tragedy of Dennehy’s murder play out. I remember when Scott Drew was hired to the seemingly impossible task of coaching what was left of Baylor Basketball.  To see that and then see this year’s championship was so unbelievable. As a documentarian, I knew this was a story that had to be told.”

SicEm365.com has built up a passionate fan community centered around Baylor sports, and the site’s owners—Brian Ethridge, Colt Barber, and Ashley Hodge—wanted to commemorate the championship. By teaming up with fellow Baylor graduate Scott, the project evolved into a chronicle of the journey of a lifetime.

“Day in and day out, SicEm365 brings together the most passionate and engaged.  Baylor fans around the nation and the world. We wanted to do something to preserve the unreal feelings our community had during March Madness. By working with Chris, we were able to take that vision and turn it into a three-part documentary telling the story of the lowest of lows to the highest of highs. Scott Drew and the rebuild of Baylor basketball—centered around the Jesus-Others-Yourself culture of JOY—is one of the greatest stories ever told, and we’re honored to be a part of it,” said Brian Ethridge, co-owner of SicEm365.com.

Featuring more than twenty interviews with fans, journalists, players, and Coach Drew himself, An Ode to Joy weaves a tale of death and resurrection set on a national stage.

“The script was written,” Scott said. “We just needed to tell the story. Coach Drew wrote this incredible story himself with the vision he set when he came to Baylor and said in his first press conference that this was a David and Goliath situation, but he came to win championships. No one believed him at the time. But his unwavering commitment to his vision of JOY and the culture of his program ensured Scott Drew achieved exactly what he set out to do. This story has staying power—if you are a sports fan of any kind, this is a can’t miss story for the ages. I believe it will be counted among other iconic sports stories like Rudy, The Blind Side, Remember the Titans and more.”
