The Shot Was There, So I Took It…

And missed. Close game all the way against undefeated #1 team at their loud, full gym. I hit several shots down the stretch but not the last one that counted. 10 seconds to go, we’re down by two. I get it top of the key, wrap around pass to another post player, I flare to the left, the ball is kicked out to a guard and swung back to me. Pump fake, one dribble to the left, pull-up. As it left my hand I knew it was a tad to the left. I was praying for it to inch to the right. Rattles around rim, and out.

We lose by two, the opposing crowd starts chanting "na na na, na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye."

So close. Hopefully we’ll have another crack at them in the playoffs.
