Teams & Schedules
The first game of many of our players' careers was a fun and overall positive experience, despite the loss. Defense was the name of the game, as we made scoring very difficult for our opponents and forced 23 turnovers! That number is a testament to the good, hard, team defense and everyone playing together. While we were unable to crack double digits in scoring, I was encouraged by our ability to consistently find really good open shots - we were just unlucky with some bounces. This was a great start to our season and it was nice to "break the ice" of playing in a real game. Nowhere to go but up!
The boys showed a lot of improvement in our second game. After a tough first quarter, the team found their legs and started playing good aggressive team basketball. We were able to draw many fouls and get to the free throw line often, shooting a strong percentage at the line. Our final point total was almost three times higher than our first game! Despite our improvement, we were unable to overcome the large first quarter deficit and suffered another loss. No matter; we will continue to work our hardest at improving each day!
