Do you like to read sports book then this is your book to read, filled with action and tons of problems and sports events. I am reading the book Full Court Press by Mike Lupica this book is about a group of boys that live in downtown Chicago. The boys that are on the basketball team are always trying to do their best during the games. Unfortunately the coach is kind of a grumpy old coach that doesn’t like how the team works together and wants things done his way, also he loves to swear at the kids there isn’t a point in the book where he’s not happy with what they have done. In this journal I will be predicting, connecting, and questioning to what’s going on in the story. I have a have a few predictions for this book. First of all I predict that the girl on the team named Dee will be able to stay on the team because she is bringing in fans to watch the games. Dee is also one of the best players on the team so I would assume that the player would end up wanting her to stay and help the team. My second predictions is that I think …show more content…
One of my first question is why does the team not want to accept the girl for who she is and how great of a basketball player she really is. I don’t get why they have to look at her like she’s the one that’s holding the team back when she’s one of the better players on the team. That is just one of my many questions I have about the basketballs team. My second question is why does the coach have to gibe at the team and, also have to be so up tight about every thing that happens on the court. “F*** it ill tell her she not coming when we get there” (Lupica 41). I mean like every practice they have or every game they have he is swearing in every single one and I don’t get why because the player are good athletes and, they play good basketball he just wants things done his way not any other way but

Winning is fun, however it must get boring if all your team does is destroy your opponent. This is the University of Connecticut (also known as UConn) women’s basketball team with a win streak of 111 games that was heartbreakingly ended in the semifinals of the 2017 NCAA tournament with a 66-64 loss to Mississippi State. Jan Diehm, the author of “111 Wins and Counting,” writes about this streak and claims that the UConn women’s basketball team is one of the best college teams to ever compete, in the newspaper The Guardian. Diehm believes that this success is due to the skill of each player on the team and their ability to execute the coach’s plan. She supports this claim through her use of statistics, quotes and logic.

Also, it’s been clear that the boys experience this abuse on a lesser extent, only their arms being grabbed, less frequently at that, and that being the farthest he will go with such conduct. The girls team, on the contrary, have to deal with much worse treatment. Additionally, the boys’ basketball instruction is more informative. It is evident that Epstein does not expect the girls team to do well, because he thinks that we, as girls, cannot do well. Contrastingly, with the boys, their practices are

Over the years parents have been becoming more aggressive towards the referees to the point where they are actually assaulting them. This is becoming a much bigger issue though the offenders are not the majority the assaults are becoming more aggressive and in some cases have ended in death, this is something that needs to be dealt with and recognized.

It is a story about friendship and about how two different people can come together, work together, and become friends. This book wasn't about basketball or coaching but about how two different people can become lifelong friends and stay that way until they die. As Bill said they were two completely different people. They didn’t care what they looked like; all they cared about is what one could give the other. “A true friend accepts you, no questions asked”(158) meaning they did not have to ask them about themselves they just accepted who they were.

The book kept me guessing until the very end of the story. The main characters are easy to relate to, and are very likeable. Lauren Oliver’s style in the book is casual, yet it keeps the reader greatly intrigued. Oliver is able to paint a very vivid picture of each event in the story, that makes the reader feel as if they are right there, participating in the challenges. The theme of desire reoccurs in the story, as the characters all desire something throughout the game.

There were screams of “We love you Derrick”, while shouts of insults, obviously from fans of the opposing team, the New York Knicks reverberated through the arena.
