Doc invites Will to join his AAU basketball team
“Speaking Truth” starts with Will losing a basketball game in front of Doc after following the coach’s plan to let Kurt take the winning shot. As the recruiter is unimpressed, Will tries to rally the team at practice. However, Kurt didn’t like his approach, leading Will to walk away.
The teenager got into contact with Jackie, who he met at the courts when trying to impress Doc, and they linked a club. Will found out Doc is her uncle, and the two privately spoke where the recruiter encouraged him to join AAU, or Amateur Athletic Union, basketball. At the next game, the Philadelphia native ignored his coach and took over the game, scoring the winning shot and impressing Doc. Uncle Phil noticed the two talking and intercepted communications, asking to be involved.
