Pass, Dribble, Shoot, Score. You see the thrilled crowd cheering? That is because the Tempo Cyclones just won the DASC tourney go be able to compete for the state championship. Then the road to the championship just started. The road to glory started in Pierre, South Dakota. Where Berent, Cael, Trevor, Xavier, and I drove up to play for the state cup.
