Showtime Sports released the trailer for “Perfect in ’76,” a documentary that will chronicle Indiana’s perfect 1975-76 season on Thurday afternoon.

The documentary, set to debut on Friday, March 10 at 9 p.m. on Showtime, was produced by Ross Greenburg and narrated by John Mellencamp.

Here’s the trailer:

And here are some additional details on the project:

The film includes interviews with key players from the ’76 team, which won 18 Big 10 Conference games by an average of 23 points. It also reveals exclusive practice footage, photos, and audio recordings from Knight’s coaching mentors, all-time greats Red Auerbach and Pete Newell.

In the 1975 season, the Hoosiers lost just a single game when they were eliminated in the “Elite Eight” of the national championship tournament, losing by just two points to the University of Kentucky. Knight began the ’76 season stating to his team, “Your goal is not winning the Big 10 Championship. It’s not winning the National Championship, but going through the entire season, from first game to NCAA Championship game, undefeated.”
