The Orange 's success from beyond the arc has been a key to their run. Syracuse’s 143 3-point attempts broke the tournament record set by the 2015 Huskies team and if the Orange hit seven 3-pointers, they would break the mark of 54 also set by last seasons team. But UConn has yet to be flustered by anyone this season. UConn is undefeated and teams struggle to contain it high power offense. Stewart is possibly one of the best to ever don a Huskies ' jersey.
I went in with a negative attitude, but I remember walking out of that gym after every practice having accomplished something new. After a few months my jumps got higher, my stunt group had the highest basket toss, I got a back-tuck. Everything fell into its place, and I finally discovered what I loved most. I am so grateful I never quit after that first practice, cheer has shaped who I am today. I’m now a captain and three year cheerleader at Brighton, 2 year United Spirit Association All-American Athlete, and planning to cheer in college.
Born on February 17, 1963, Michael Jeffrey Jordan is arguably the greatest to bless the sport and culture. Everyone witnessed his potential early on in college as a North Carolina Tar Heel. Entering the University at Chapel Hill in 1981 the freshman, made the game winner against Georgetown for the national championship. His trail of accomplishments continues when named College Player of the Year in his sophomore and junior year. Back to back accomplishments only carried over into his NBA career.
My softball team had gone undefeated all season. Every other team we played was no competition, until we played Ridgefield. They had also gone undefeated all season. But this tournament was allstars. None of the previous games mattered until that weekend.
Along with two other varsity players, I organized offseason workouts, lifts and scrimmages for the team. Missing five of six seniors at our Fall tournament, I stepped up and lead the team to a second place finish. Slowly the team came together came together and won district. Although the year ended with a heart breaking loss in the playoffs, I became the leader of the team and earned all-district honors. My senior year I will be the sole varsity team captain.
I had TWO friends, and one was a boy! Then one night, my mom came in and told me that Hannah would be moving away that summer to Utah. I wept bitterly for hours that night. I couldn’t fathom how I was going to go to middle school without her. After timeless hours of deepest sorrow, I realized that I wouldn’t be alone, because I had another
We won all of our games till the end which was the championship. The championship was a really tough and competitive game against a team called ELITE Squad South. They are probably in the top 5 out of all the amazingly talented teams in 14 and under. First inning we were losing 0-3. Then in the second inning it was 2-3.
My mom mad frequent stops to see me but couldn’t stay long because she had my sister to take care as well as work. I went home on the sixth day and had to return to the hospital the next day. My stomach was in more pain then what I had before I went the first time. I can’t remember anything past arriving at the emergency room, until the point that I woke up to my grandmother singing with the gospel channel on the hospital TV (she had the most beautiful voice. It was also the first time I ever heard her sing).
For anyone who has ever been passionate about being the best at something, whether it is athletics, music, art, theatre or any number of other endeavors, it is painful to come face to face with someone who is more talented. I have lived this experience in college basketball. While never a great athlete, I enjoyed a fair amount of success as a high school basketball player, mostly because I am 6’8” tall. During my junior and senior seasons my high school basketball team tallied a record of 44-13 and made it to the regional championship twice. At the end of my senior season I was named First-Team All Conference, as well as named to the All-Area Team.
I was in 7th grade and I was on spring break with my family. I had brought Lumpy with me on the trip. During our third day there my mom had us switch rooms for some reason. What I didn’t know was that I had left him in the first room we stayed in. I started crying and thought I had lost him forever.
Off to Tahoe One day when I was visiting Tahoe my mom called a family meeting and she said we were all as a family going to move to Incline Village. I started crying on the inside but on the outside I was showing much exitement. I felt really sad but I didn’t want to disappoint my mom so I never told her. We just got back from our dads about a week after the announcement. We got back to the house and that’s when I saw a sign that said sold, and this time I started crying on the inside and the outside.
The Smoove twins Chris and Jrue have played outstanding Trevon and Andre were playing good as well but Robert and Tyron weren 't playing that good so we needed one more good guy to make this team great... And I was that guy. We won every game but one without me, the one game we lost was to the Honeybadgers. The team we were playing in the championship. The Honeybadgers have never lost, they won every single game and every single championship since our league started in 1972. (You do the math because I 'm
Jordan led his team to the finals six times and came out victorious all six of those times. He was also named finals MVP all six times. Jordan has another amazing record when he scored 63 points against the Boston Celtics in 1986. Jordan’s success in the finals and post-season was an amazing feat that’ll probably never come close to being accomplished ever again (Zachmo Marsupalami.) When focusing on the post season performances between the two
We had another great season and won our first playoff game since 2005. I did so well that I earned first team All-District and third team All-State honors. I was one of the five from my team that made that list, that was step four forward, and just like Gwynn I took four steps and I was standing back on home plate, for I had hit a metaphorical home
Carr, who runs the offense for Penn State, also leads the team in assists with 3.8 per game. In addition, Watkins is anchoring the Nittany Lion 's defense and is second in the Big Ten with 2.9 blocks per game. He earned Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors in mid-December. 3. Anthony Cowan, Maryland Coming into this year, Maryland was in desperate need of help after four of last year 's starters turned pro.
