I started off helping with younger generations at the age of 14. As they were learning I was learning too. I helped at basketball clinics that happened year round teaching kids how to dribble, pass, shoot, develop fundamental skills. I started to ref basketball games starting off with five and six year olds. Then gradually worked my way up to 13/14’s as I grew older and more familiar with the game.
Playing with her for 3 years was one of the best experiences for me because I was challenged by her hard work ethic every day in practice and got to guard her every single day. Being on the court with her for every practice made a huge impact on my game because she was such a phenomenal player to play against/with. I do not have a specific story with her, but just creating a relationship with her inside and outside of basketball helped me get to know an amazing person on a greater level.
The first day of tryouts was almost over the coaches got all of us together and put us in to scrimmage teams. At first I was really nervous I didn 't want to mess up but we started to play and a started to do what I did best which is play my game after we played a was pretty convenient in my performance but we still had the whole

I also started the 21 day training program from the book “How To Be Better At Basketball In 21 days” by James Wilson. This week I learned about topics related to shooting form, dribbling, and layups. I watched two videos by Howard Elite Basketball and ILovebasketballTV on how to get better shooting form. I learned key points like how there’s no single perfect shooting form and that everyone 's form is unique. I also learned that you generate power from your lower body, and that you should have a
When recess or free time came around each school day, after lunch, some guys including my older brother would shoot baskets and play games with teams. Sadly, I never got chosen because “I was a girl and knew nothing about sports”. Although this upset me, I didn’t take it to heart. I started practicing at home with kids in my neighborhood. After weeks or maybe even months of practice, my older brother then noticed how good I was getting at the sport.
Updike makes widespread use of personifying. The street Flick works on is personified as “running,” “stopping,” “bending,” and being “cut off” before it has a “chance” (Updike). All of these images similarly apply to Flick. The gas pumps are personified as “idiot pumps,” similar to guards in basketball. Only Flick’s, lost in his daydreams, could pass by the pumps; imagine them as guards on a basketball team.
Only eight seconds before the timer went out the opposing team managed to put in a three- point shot. Following that CJ made a three- point to tie the game once again, however, of the referees argued claiming he was on the three- point line. Which put CJ’s team onto a disadvantage of 1. This still 3.1 seconds left of game time, and like it often happens, CJ earned two free throws. CJ didn’t perform any worse under pressure.
When I was younger, my dad and I got season tickets to the Illini basketball season. We would go to every home game and away game if they were playing close. I would always look up to the Illini players and want to be just like them when I grew up. Every time I went to the game I would always go to the closest balcony to try and yell their names so they would look up at me. It was the first home game of the season and Illinois are taking on Michigan.
My favorite player to watch is Kobe Bryant. He makes basketball seem as a mere game for little kids. He is an all-around athlete is still going strong at 30 years old. He is a big role model to many kids who enjoy playing this sport. Kobe can do anything he is a very versatile player and could get anywhere around the court in a blink of an eye.
