Basketball Time

This weekend we had a few exciting games. Lexi's team won their last regular season game. She played pretty well, particularly in the second half. She played tough defense, but really excelled in rebounding. I was very proud of her. Next week is her tournament, and they have a decent chance of winning.

Cami's team won again, though it was much closer. She did a great job, but didn't have as many opportunities for steals, as the girls she guarded weren't primary ball-handlers. She scored another basket, and brought the ball up quite a few times.

Griffin's school team lost a thriller on a basket that went through at the buzzer. While he didn't make any baskets, he did have a bunch of good shots. He did a good job as the point guard, and is beginning to see the court even better; several times he tried to hit the open man ahead of him on a fast break. However, he excelled at playing defense. He stole the ball off the opening tip, harassed his man into multiple turnovers, and his hustle getting back on defense on the fast break was awesome.

Griffin's travel team won both of their games. He made a basket and swished a free throw, and had multiple short jump shots just miss. He continued playing good defense. I can see Griffin becoming a lockdown defender if he continues to keep his intensity.

Next week is more of the same. Wash, rinse, repeat.
