The Marvyn Korn Effect
Season 1 / Episode 2
Despite Westbrook’s easy win against Playa Verde, Marvyn starts noticing some bad habits on the team — particularly the players’ over-reliance on Louise. Determined to teach them to play unselfishly before their next game against Encinitas, Marvyn cracks down on the practice regimen, implementing two-a-days to get them “back to basics”. Certain members of the Westbrook faculty, however, are suspicious of Marvyn’s encroachment on the players’ schedules. When Mouse, Olive, and Samantha get an after-school assignment that conflicts with one of their practices, Marvyn finds himself at odds with their teacher, Ms. Grint, who despises his basketball-first mentality and disregard for the rules. After Marvyn is finally forced to reign in the practice schedule, the team decides to take their training into their own hands. Back in Wisconsin, Emma is unhappy, facing cyber-bullying from classmates. When her mom gets a job oﬀer in Italy, Emma encourages her to take it so she can go live with Marvyn, who is hesitant about taking her in. A later bonding moment with Destiny, however, causes Marvyn to reconsider. Meanwhile, Louise struggles to balance her father’s expectations with her commitment to the team. Inspired by Marvyn’s coaching, she is finally able to draw the line between coach and dad. Some flashing lights sequences or patterns may affect photosensitive viewers.
