Yesterday was the season opener for my school basketball team, and we won by a lot. The final score was 46 to 16. I started as a point guard, and in the first quarter I managed 4 steals, 3 assists and 2 points. By the end of the game, I had 8 points, 7 steals and 5 assists. It was fun, until I cramped up at the end of the game and couldn't play the last five minutes.
My teammates played fantastic! They hit a lot of outside shots and good lay-ups, and we had at least 30 rebounds. Chase had a lot of fast-break points, a few assists and he did some great passing. Troy played really well, too; he had 5 assists and passed really well. Logan had a great rebounding game, with at least 5 offensive rebounds and probably 10 defensive rebounds. Jack F. did an amazing job with assists, and hit two key shots at both the beginning and end of the game. Lenny hit a lot of far shots and had 3 steals and a pair of assists. We are now 1-0, with another 11 games to go.
Tonight, I can't wait to get to ARCO to see the Kings take on the Dallas Mavs. If you're headed to ARCO, check out my mom's blog (www.sacfoodies.com) for some good eats at Kings games.
Now, I'm headed downstairs to watch what's probably the best football game that TV has to offer today: the New York Giants v. the Philadelphia Eagles. Just in case you're wondering, I'm rooting for the Eagles.
Until next time, goooooo Kings!
