Basketball taught me to keep going and never allow the tough moments to define me. Second, basketball has taught me what it means to work hard, be a team player, push through, and to never give up. There were days that I did not want to practice or I felt like I had too much on my plate, but I knew that I had a commitment to my team which meant I was always there for them. These are important life lessons to learn not only as a player, but as a student. Lessons from basketball have positively impacted all areas of my life.

The determination of the players and their will to play is what truly makes a sport exciting, and with the chance for each player’s career to end at college, they play with everything they’ve got. For example, John Wooden, a basketball player that went to the University of California once said, "It 's not how big you are, it 's how big you play."
