We were winning so big, and I thought it was a great game. When I looked around the locker room and saw everyone’s faces, I felt selfish. I had only been thinking about myself and this game being my last. I had not thought about my other teammates who also were playing their last high school basketball game. My coach told me to pass the ball to my teammates, even though I was scoring a ton of points.
There was only two minutes until halftime. The other team stole the ball from one of our teammates and scored a last second shot on the buzzer. The score was 16-20. Coach was rushing his words and thoughts and trying to tell us what to do so that we could win this game. Half time was over.
I was putting in the work at practice, getting lots of reps in at point guard, and really getting to know the sets better. Then Gavin got hurt and a part of me wad down because he was getting on a roll and helping the team win but the competitive side of me was thinking that now is my chance to make my mark and to get some varsity minutes. We played Maquoketa and I didn’t get in the game. Little down about that and the fact that we lost to Maquoketa who we beat last time by more than 25 points, but it was there freshman who punched us in the stomach when he mad a last second shot to beat us by one. Gavin was back the next day at practice and my spirit was dead.
Therefore the ball must be touched, deflected, or passed to another player before entering the shooting circle. This rule created a lot of confusion for current players, as the rule previously stated that the ball could be hit directly into the circle. So for free hits inside the 25-yard line, set plays should be prepared so that every player has a certain role. One possibility is that the hitter either dribble the ball five yards before taking a shot on goal, or make a five yard pass to a teammate. Another set play could be a flat pass to a teammate who immediately takes a shot at the far post of the goal.
There was so much pain in his ankle he was screaming in agony. As Gavin and I were picking up Tamar carefully not injure him even more, our trainer called a timeout. We took our friend over to the sidelines to be inspected by our trainer and a medical aid. As the aid and my trainer were inspecting him, I looked over at the other team. Grinning in our direction, their trainer said something in my small but useful German vocabulary “good job boys.” I gritted my teeth at the other team putting my fist in the air saying, “you will pay.” My Coach said to me, “Tamar will not be playing anytime soon, you will
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.
I remember it like it was yesterday freshman year basketball tryouts I was really excited as soon as that final bell rang I ran straight to the gym to get ready tryouts were the whole week but I felt like I needed to get off to a good start. I got in the gym put my shoes on stretched and started to get warmed up. The coach walked in the gym I got really nervous he didn 't know me I didn 't know him so I went up shook his hand and told him my name and the grade I was in. Tryouts finally started we started doing drills I was trying so hard not to mess up but I ended up messing up a couple times but I said hey no one 's perfect. The first day of tryouts was almost over the coaches got all of us together and put us in to scrimmage teams.
The Los Angeles Lakers shot an abysmal 29 percent from the floor in their 90-71 preseason-opening loss to the Utah Jazz here Sunday, and many of those misses occurred the same way. They hit the front of the rim. Typically, a poor shooting night with so many players clanking so many shots off the front iron is a common sign of team-wide fatigue, which seemed understandable as Lakers coach Byron Scott has focused on running his players hard throughout training camp here. But Scott didn't think fatigue played much of a role in their shooting. "I think a lot of it is just, we just missed a lot of wide-open shots," Scott told reporters after practice at the University of Hawaii at Manoa's Stan Sheriff Center on Monday.
My heart was beating a thousand times a minute I was thrilled. I was starting to gain confidence in myself and in my game. About 3 months later our winter practicing began on the way there my dad told me, “No matter what happens out there, just remember it's about having fun.” As I came into practice I was greeted by the familiar faces that were at the tryout. The first thing we did was throwing with a partner. I was with my friend from basketball so I wasn’t nervous to throw to him.
College basketball player should be paid for these reasons they put their bodies at risk, they don’t have money, and they skip classes for basketball. Basketball players put their bodies risk every time they play.

If we come to play, everything else should fall in line." Carter 's work ethic and success might even be rubbing off on Miles. "You play together for four years, you play against each other all summer and they lived together for two years, They kind of know what each others doing," Huggins said. "I always get great effort from JC defensively. This is the best Dax has been.
“Why can’t we get into our freaking offense! ?” This is all I really remember from Coach McKendrick at halftime last year against Niles North in what was a tough night for our basketball team. Prior to this, we beat New Trier at home and then went on the road and beat the pre-season unanimous vote to win conference, Highland Park, in our first conference game. Before the New Trier game, our game plan was simple: we were smaller, but faster, so we were going to run the court and make this is a fast pace game. We executed our gameplan, and we won.
