So, when sophomore year came around I was prepared for a season of a lot of minutes and a lot of basketball. But, that 's not how it went. I got some minutes but I was held to a higher standard than all the other players so I would often get benched for the smallest of mistakes. I was frustrated and the joy started to come out of basketball. Then as my junior year came around my next sticking moment came.
Not only because Coach Wright could see them in me, but because when I met the team I could see the same passions in all of them. Now that I am here, living the dream and reaching my goal of playing D1 basketball, it is time for me to live out these passions and finally play at the next level. I need to remember what Rolfes told me about being a great leader and show those qualities with this team. I also need to remember Napheesa’s work ethic and how she got to UCONN and use that as motivation to work very hard every single practice and game here at Miami. Without these two people in my life, making an impact on my basketball journey, I would not have the passions that I do today and wouldn’t be at Miami University

I love to be pushed, to go beyond what I ever thought I could achieve, to become better than I ever thought possible. I truly love playing basketball, I love the rush of accomplishing a goal I set for myself, for finally making 8 for 10 free throws after failing for so long. Basketball is not just a sport, but a metaphor for how I want to live my life.

It was game day today. My teammates and I had a game against our rivalry high school Alta and we were pumped because we have beaten them every year since 2014. This year felt like we would keep that streak up and in motion. They had 6 really tall players while we only had 2. It made us all nervous for a while until we seemed to get over it.

I still love the game of basketball, but not enough to pour ten to fifteen hours a week into it, like I do with lacrosse. I absolutely adore the opportunity I get to play a sport I love every day. Our team this year has a great chance of pushing for a state title, and I could not have more hope, nervousness, and excitement built up inside of me. Every time I think about the chance I get to enter the field with Brentwood across my chest, I feel ecstatic. I feel blessed with such an incredible opportunity that I never want to take for granted.
Because of this hard work, I lettered varsity my freshman year at Crown Point, and I was placed on the varsity Munster volleyball team. I have been on the most successful club team around.

Up until now, I have always taken volleyball for granted.
All the six games, at least scoring one basket, we got to the finals. Fourth quarter of the final game came. Our team was losing by two and there were around fourteen seconds remaining. I don’t know what the coach thought of but he decided to put me in when he had so many other options. The coach told me to stay in the three point line in order to shoot if I can.

Michael was drafted 3rd in 1984 Draft Class and Scottie was drafted 5th in the 1987 Draft Class. These are two picks that one will ever forget. Once Scottie Pippen and Michael Jordan stepped on the court together, their mark on history began. They won six NBA championship together, each one more meaningful than the last.

Brian. “King Clutch”. Scalibrine was a very dominant player during his playing career.
