1-1

Are you wondering how my basketball game went on Monday night? Well, it didn't go very well. My team stunk up the joint and we lost the game. Nobody was making shots, the other team probably shot 30 free throws, and we made way too many silly mistakes (such as traveling, taking the ball out of bounds with our foot on the line, not catching the ball, etc.)

If we don't get our act in gear we're going to be in trouble. The league is getting more competitive and we seem to be getting worse. I'm use to playing with people who know how to move without the ball on offense and my team definitely has trouble in this area. Just as important as knowing how to set a screen, you have to know how to use a screen. I try to screen for people and they don't even notice it most of the time.

We'll have no problem beating bad teams, but if we play like we did on Monday night, it could be a rough season.

As far as how my game is going, I'm trying to get better at ball handling, keeping my head up while dribbling, and creating easy shots for my teammates. I still have a lot of room for improvement in this area, and will be focusing on this in the next game.
