So, it is very important for anyone who wants a college basketball scholarship to attend as many of the camps as possible. Just one super day or hour or even just one great play that is seen by just one coach or even a friend of a coach could lead to a full-ride college scholarship.

Chase that was shot from 25 feet away (Hiskey). But thankfully the peach baskets did not last forever; the baskets were thrown out for iron rims and nets as early as 1893 (Hiskey).

The game of basketball has come a long way from then because it went from being a very unknown game at a YMCA to being one of the most popular sports in the world getting millions and millions of fans to come out to basketball games every single night. Basketball has impacted us a great deal today because we have many great players such as Stephen Curry, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Dwayne Wade who are role models to young kids now.
Recess had just started, and I was already at the basketball court. I grabbed a basketball that bounced higher than me, and started shooting hoops.

But then my teachers called us in, and boy, did that change things for the worse........

Last year I played basketball for the Bath team and Red Cedar team. In my last game I had 24 points, over 10 rebounds, and 5 blocks. After the game the opposing coach came up to me and asked if I wanted to join an AAU team and at the time I didn’t know what that was. He gave me his number and I learned that AAU was a league for really good basketball players. “Are you really serious about basketball?” said my Dad “Yes Dad, I’m sure” I said “Then let’s call the coach” said Dad Then we called the coach and started going to practice.
Every time it is a close game, or we are playing against a bigger team, Coach has a simple message to us: just go get the ball. If we want to win, we need to just go get the rebound, or go dive on the floor for a loose ball. It does not matter how; all that matters is that we need to just go get the ball. It is when the ball is in the air that the game plan goes out the window, and whoever wants the rebound more is going to succeed. This is why I love basketball, because when the game becomes close and it comes down to effort, I know that no one is going to outwork me for the ball.
