He was arrested and hauled off to jail.
He was later denied bail.
It was then revealed.
He is in jail because he failed.

That rule was never proven.
In jail that rumor was still roaming.
While Crew gets behind those walls.
Warden RUDOLPH calls.
Calls him before meeting anyone.
Hoping he'd boost the reputation,
It will look good while he's on his way.

They go to the court and find the brothers.
Crewe sees one they call DEACON.
He then chooses to challenge.
Challenges him to a basketball game.
If he loses the brothers play their game.
Deacon elbows & punches & he grabs.
Crewe just looked at it and laughed.
Crewe wants pride and respect.
Deacon doesn't want to give the respect.
While shooting the game-winning shot.
He gets robbed and Crewe makes the shot.
Deacon calls foul without being touched.
At this point, Crewe did not care much.
So he lets Deacon go ahead and win.
But catches one brothers attention.
EARL MEGGET gives Crewe the respect.
Megget joins because he's impressed.
Impressed with how Crewe came out.
Meanwhile, the guards sniff it out.

By calling him racial slurs.
But Megget does not fall for their words.
He stays soft and kind.
Megget shows that he's wise.
Later on at practice.
Deacon brings more to practice.
The Warden hears about it.
So he tries to crush their spirits.
He floods out where they practice.
Hoping they will not practice.
But the team does so anyway.
While the guards use an inmate.
To spy on the team.
Then he plans on killing.
Killing Caretaker in his cell.
He wires explosives in his cell.
Soon as Caretaker walks in.
The cell ends up exploding.
On the day of the game.
Caretaker's death changed.
Changed the team, they wanted to win.
He even left the team gear to play in.
