Basketball Tournament In Boston

Basketball Tournament In Boston

By Andrew

 

My basketball team and I went to Boston because we won most of our games during the regular season. All of the teams were from New York, Massachusetts, and Connecticut. Some of the kids on my team didn’t think we would do good because the other teams were from three different states. We played our first game and blew them out, everyone on my team had a very good game everyone was very energized, everyone contributed into our win.

We won the second game too, we played a team that was a little better than us but we beat them by one with six seconds left we only won because we worked together and put in effort.

We played one more game and beat them by fifteen points we played a good game because we had a good night of rest the night before.

After all of the games we played I thought we were like the underdogs because we had won all of our other games but we didn’t think we were going to do good.

We made it to the championship game they had a very athletic player who could shoot from anywhere my team also had a very athletic player, but everyone was having a bad game and no one could guard the very athletic player. For example, we threw lazy passes, took bad shots, our point guards weren’t playing well either they weren’t protecting the ball. Everyone fell apart and no one could think about what they were doing. The other team won by twenty points, but they deserved to win because they just out worked us. In other words they worked harder than we did.

I felt upset that we lost but we did very well, but if we worked harder and if we weren’t so tired we could of won. I also felt very happy because even if we lost in the finals we still made it to the finals and won all of our other games.

Isaac Newton Biography

His mother remarried when he was 3 years old and left him with his grandparents.
