Although our first tournament ended 0-3, including a very tough loss in the first game of the season, the girls came to play in the second tournament of the season. While I was watching baseball with the boys, DLG's team was mowing down the competition in Kingston. First a 3 point win and then a 10 point win to go 2-0 on Saturday. I was excited to coach the team on Sunday as we were facing a weaker team that needed a coach. As LC agreed to coach the other team, I coached the girls.
We started out on fire going a three quarters court trap. We jump out to an early 6 point lead. DLG has 2 of the points on a nice put back rebounding on the weak side. More up and down the floor as our lead widens. DLG scores another basket, this time a little 10 footer. The girl is on fire! We are up 16 at the half. LC is pissed since she really wanted to beat me, even though that would mean a loss for her team.
After the fight (a story for another day that included a couple of 9th Grade girls teams) and thinking that we would face the press again in the Championship Game, we were set up to break their press. We had 12 and 14 ready to go. But we never needed it. They played half court man to man which played right into our strengths. We executed some good pass and cuts and scored on a bunch of offensive rebounds. It was great to see as the girls pulled away to win the Championship by 13 points.
After going 0-3 in the first tournament, we come out firing in teh second tournament to go 4-0. Great job by the team!
