Sports - Basketball 2Here's an update on the 2 basketball games we had yesterday to kick off our 2009-2010 seasons.

3rd Grade Girls Team — Before the game, I talked to the girls about all the key offensive & defensive principles to remember.  We went out & warmed up.  The referees blew the whistle, the girls instantly forgot every principle we talked about on offense.  I think the sheer adrenaline rush of 10 girls on the court was enough for everyone's short-term memory to be completely blotted out.  The good news is that we remembered how to play defense.  We ended up winning 20-11.  The girls had a blast.

5th Grade Boys Team — Before the game, the boys seemed to be tuned in for the most part.  We headed out to a quick 5-0 lead.  Then our defense completely left us for the rest of the first half.  After being outscored 14-2, we were down 14-7.  The second half was a different story.  We held them to 1 point for the entire 2nd half until the we tied it at 15 in the last minute of the game.  Unfortunately, we gave up a late basket and lost 17-15.  But the boys still had a great time.
