Scott Howard (Michael J. Fox) is a typical high school student who plays basketball for the underachieving Beavers who regularly get humiliated by their rivals, the Dragons. One day, when the hormones kick in, he suddenly finds his body undergoing certain changes that were not covered in his High School Sex Ed/biology classes!

So, how does the movie end??
'Win ... if you can!"" You'll be singing those words again soon, it plays non-stop throughout the final game (which does drag on a bit)!
Afraid that the wolf is taking over, and against the public vote urged on by the Styles marketing campaign, Scott decides to be himself and leave the wolf behind. First he is dropped from the school play, and is urged to keep the wolf for the final championship game against the Dragons.
Scott doesn't show. The coach has no choice but to play the game without the wolf, and they are getting pounded.
In a time-out, Scott enters the gym, but not as the wolf. He inspires his team, and it is Chubbs who throws the first 3-pointer. Scott tirelessly runs the court, working with the team for the first time, and the scores soon become almost-level.
With seconds remaining and the score 49-50, Mick fouls Scott for the final time. Scott sinks the first free-throw, then there is a long pause for the final shot. Scott bounces the basketball a few times ... he pauses ... shoots - the ball ounces around the ring ... then falls in. Mick closes his eyes in agony. The crowd go wild.
Scott steps past Pamela and chooses to celebrate with Boof and his dad instead.
