Basketball World! This has been another intense and fun week!
Monday - Me and my team had a game against North Star Academy in Newark. We won the game by 69 with the final score being 100-31. It was really easy and I had the play the whole game because we didn't have any subs. The rest of the week I stayed after school to watch and support the other Academy teams.
On Thursday evening we had an IZOD work out where Coach Brian worked me and a few other team mates out. It was a great work out and I felt ready for the weekend’s tournament. In my last tournament in Sweden I felt that I could have had a better attitude and could have controlled the team better so that was my goal for the MADE Hoops tournament.
On Friday I left right after school to go to the tournament in Springfield, Massachusetts. The car ride was about 3 hours and we drove straight to the hotel. We were a little worried about all the snow they had said was going to fall but it was no problem.
On Sunday I got to sleep in because my first game, against Riverside was changed to 12:45. The game was intense and the gym was really loud because we played one of our rival teams. We won that game by 20 points and I had 24. After the game I went to watch some of my school mates play their games. And then we slowly drove home in ice and snow. This week I will work on my shots because I didn’t hit too many this weekend. Now I need to get ready for the Bball Spotlight tournament and then Session 3 of MADE Hoops right after that. Next week I will talk about a hard choice I have to make.
