One on One is a 1977 drama film starring Robby Benson and Annette O'Toole. It was written by Benson and Jerry Segal (Robby's father), and shot on location in 1976 at Colorado State University. The film features songs from Seals and Crofts and was directed by Lamont Johnson.
Henry Steele (Robby Benson), a naive high school basketball star, wins a college scholarship. Talented but with a tendency to show off, Henry must overcome the pressures of bullying from his team members and a confrontation with a mean-spirited coach (G.D. Spradlin).
On the academic side, Henry must deal with his lack of reading skills. He is assigned a tutor to help him through the semester, the beautiful Janet Hays (Annette O'Toole); her academic and emotional support help Henry get through freshman year.
