5 Males, 4 Females

The ball stops bouncing for everyone… eventually. When the heroes of Cleveland’s East Technical High School basketball team won the state championship in ‘55 the world was theirs for the taking. Thirteen years later, the ball has stopped bouncing and reality has set in. A funny, lyrical and mournful exploration of what happens to inner-city hardwood stars when the glory days are a distant memory.

“A revelation… To miss it would be like bungling a free throw during the final seconds of overtime.” —Cleveland Plain Dealer

“Calhoun’s script shines brilliantly, etching clear and entertaining portraits of people who once shared something great.” —The Cleveland Scene

“Funny, Gripping, Dramatic and Involving with a karma ending that will have you singing the praises of The Mighty Mighty Scarabs.” —

Find out what's happening in Hoe's Be Winning 2 ( These Hoe's Aint Got No Manners ) 
“ Actually I'm looking for someone who works here. A Tameka Johnson. I was told she works here. Is she in today?” the woman asked taking one of her long acrylic nails and scratching between a loose weave track. 
Meka was taken aback. 
I don't know this bitch?! Who in the hell is this? 
“ Is this in regards to your food stamp or benefit case with us? Is Tameka working your case?” 
“ No this is strictly personal. Look is she here or not? Shit I already told you my stamps and my check was straight!” 
Aww SHIT! It suddenly dawned on Meka just who the fuck this was! I know Antonio's baby mama ain’t have nerve enough to come up to my job! MY job? Oh hell no! This bitch really don't know who the fuck she's messin' with. I am not the one! Oh no baby! 
“ Well you're speaking to Tameka Johnson. I don't believe I've ever met you before. Actually I know for a fact I don't know you. So what could we possibly have to discuss that's of a personal nature?” 
The woman paused looking her up and down. Her eyes doing an obvious inspection of her. 
“ Oh bitch I think we have a LOT in common! Namely the fact you fuckin' my man! I think that counts as a lot don't you? We have Antonio Raglen in common you raggedy ass bitch! If that ain’t of a “ personal nature” I don’t know what the hell is.” 
Meka eye's grew large. She was stunned...but only momentarily. 
“ Funny you should call me raggedy. Who's the welfare recipient and who works at the welfare office. You're the one standing in front of me with those weave tracks hanging on by a thread,a hope and a prayer. I don't know what you heard bitch but I assure you, Meka Johnson ain’t never raggedy! Baby girl you got it twisted. If you're not here on official business, I really suggest you” 
“ Oh you want me to leave so your co-workers don't know what a WHORE you are don't you?” Shantina said extra loud so everyone could hear. Unfortunately her proclamation fell on deaf ears. Damn it's empty up in here today! Shantina thought looking around quickly. She’d been so busy yelling at Javis's lil' bad ass she hadn't noticed it was empty. 
“ Oh bitch they gon' know today! Standing there in ya nice little pantsuit, with your salon haircut and ya damn M.A.C makeup on, looking your nose down on me. All the while you breaking up my family! Leaving my daughter without a father. Ummph! Bitch you gotta a lotta damn nerve!” Shantina crossed her arms across her chest. 
Lawd Jesus don't make me come from behind this goddamn counter on this hoe! Meka thought trying to talk herself down. The last thing I need is to be without my job and I'm in the middle of house hunting! 
“ You know what? I think if you have any issues with Antonio you may want to take those up with him. If Antonio ended your relationship. You need to discuss it with him. Not me.” 
“ Oh you'd like to think that wouldn't you?” Shantina spat. Her eyes narrowing, throwing daggers at Meka. “ No bitch imma deal with you. Woman to fuckin' woman! Antonio came into my life and changed it.
