our lives consist of basketball and... basketball.

for 2+ hours, 6/7 days of the week we're doing a whole lot of running. i have a firm belief that if you added up every down & back, every suicide, every drill, it would add up to be at least a 5k. AT LEAST. i'm seriously loving it right now & i'm sad it will be ending soon. today we played provo. the jv game was not as fun as the last time we played them when we won by 20+ points, we still won, but it most definitely wasn't pretty. varsity comes  & it's expected to be one tough game. provo had a couple players who weren't able to play last time & that was a rough game, so this one wasn't going to be any different. false. we KILLED them. i was a little embarrassed that we were still pressing them when we were up by so much & there was a bit of a scuffle going on between some parents, but none-the-less, we won. 3:00 left in the 4th quarter was when coach yelled for taylor & i to sub in. i was scared while taking off my warm-up and thoughts of the lehi game were racing through my mind. i'm gonna embarrass myself like last game, but this time the student body is watching. yikes. once i stepped on the court all those emotions left & i just focused on what i could do to not let my team down. our goal was to hold provo at 32 points and i was scared that i wasn't going to be able to do it. we ran the plays & i had a wide open shot... i took it... it went in. PRAISE! seriously, happiest moment. then we hussled back on d & everyone who was in was playing really hard. tay scored TWICE! now when it says she scored in the newspaper, it will be real. the game ended & the final score was 61-31. we held 'em! we were both sooooo happy, & to make it better, our boys team won too!!
i love basketball!
