Off to a 2-0 Start in Basketball League

I can't even remember the exact score from last nights game; but we won.

I do remember the halftime score of 10-19 though. Very low scoring! It took both teams a while to get going. I think it was 2-0 us after about six minutes of play. Then, in the second half, we got off to a very poor start as our opponent nearly tied the game. I remember at one point less than halfway through the second half we were only ahead 22-20.

We kept our composure and eventually took back control of the game again and ended up winning by 12 or 13 points. I believe the end score was 42-29, but like I said, I'm not totally sure. The team we played did not have good shooters, but they were very physical on defense and on offense. We use a 2-3 zone to encourage them to shoot to exploit their weakness. Defensively they played hard, but fouled a lot. We must have made 15 points at the free throw line in the second half as we were in the bonus with 10 minutes left.

Personally, I had a good game. I only shot 3 or 4 three pointers the whole game (making one of them), and instead made a lot of two point baskets, ranging from lay-ups, to three footers, to 15 foot bank shots. I also focused my efforts on the boards and swallowed up quite a few rebounds, both offensive and defensive. A few of my baskets came after an offensive rebound.

It was not an exciting win, but a win, nonetheless. Hopefully we can keep it going next week when we are sure to be faced with another challenging matchup.
