Ahhh… These boys are teasing their parents. Down 8-14 and then down 16-21. They buzzed back on a 30-10 run to sting to 46-31 victory. Let’s face it we are 2nd half team. yes the scoreboard says 44-31 but clearly, the basket was made before the buzzer.
The team is playing great team ball. Interesting stats; 4 players scored 8 or more points, 7 of 9 total players scored and got a rebound, 8 of 9 attempted a shot and got a steal, 2 players got 10 or more rebounds and 2 players got 4 assists. These stats only happen when everyone plays for the team and not themselves. When team ball is played we create problems for the other team. They can’t focus on 1 or 2 players like on other teams. They have to focus on everyone.
We shot 31% from the field, 57% from the line and 25% from the 3 point land.
Something I noticed, that team plays dirty. We may see them in the playoffs so I need to prepare you for that type of play. Remind me on this Tuesday. So proud of you guys. As for the bench, you guys need to keep grinding in practice. Your moment will come, when it does, you must make the most of it. ICE AGE SID did that today, he played cool – like a yeti eating frozen spaghetti! He has 50 seconds to play at the end of the game. He got a steal, crossed over a defender and then another defender pushed him from behind. Sid with “Ice in his veins” knocked down both free throws. Value the minutes you play, it’s there game moments which will increase your time and the starters get to rest and cheer for you. Trust me, for a starter there is nothing more fun than to sit on the bench at the end of a winning game knowing you did your job and cheer your teammates as they do theirs. Go HUSL!
