Once I went up to the line I looked at that scored bored and told myself “We can win this!” So I shot the first shot and I made it as coach called a timeout I tied the game. I went out to shoot my second shot and it went in to make us go up 1 with 10 seconds left as the bulls are driving down they get a 2 and we are stuck with the decision to go for the win or lose the game if not being able to tie by making a free throw. We drive down and we pass it to Curry he shoots there are 0.3 seconds on the clock if he misses this we lose I watched that ball go all the way to the hope and he made it we won the crowd was crazy and they were everywhere.

I take the ball out and instantly we get a turnover. I couldn't believe it, the turnover felt like it was my fault. All of my teammates were confused which lead to more turnovers. Now the other team is coming back for the win. I remember the last two minutes of the game, it was like a clock ticking. Everyone on both teams just wanted to run the clock out. Finally I got a steal and went down the court for a layup, that put us up by two points. The other team comes down the court and waist time then, they take a three while were yelling out shot! The shot goes in. That makes them go up by one, our coach called a timeout. There are only 5 seconds left in the game and I have to take the ball out again. I didn't want to make another mistake so, I launched the ball down court to Chris Robinson. He didn't have the shot so he passed it to Cecil. Cecil also didn't have a shot so he passed it to Martell. As soon as Martelle got the ball there is one more second left and he shoots the ball. The ref calls a foul, and the ball goes in putting us back up by two points. We already knew that we were going to win all Martelle had to do was make this last free throw. He made the free throw and he is the reason that we won that game. Closest game I ever played
It all began on November 3, 2015 during my first middle school basketball tournament. The grey brick walls of the gymnasium looking more like a prison than a school. The school’s “Lincoln Park Elementary School” sign had graffiti and missed a couple letters from the name. The court was terribly small, but we began by playing the superb team of Jam on It. We were blown out and I headed back up to my mom and dad in the parent filled stands. The game wasn’t even fun to play and we looked like third graders playing them. I looked up to my parents as sad as could be.
I breathlessly told my team, “Guys this is it, are we going to let our hard work go to waste?” They all shouted,”NO!” Even though we were ten points up, every basketball player knows that could change real fast. We ended by passionately saying our chant,”Thunder on me, thunder on three, ONE, TWO, THREE THUNDER!” We move back onto the court nervously but filled with a passion to win. The bleachers are full and there is not a moment of silence. Both teams are giving their best work, effort, and skill. The game was so intense and close I couldn 't determine who would win.
Basketball was my favorite sport growing up. I’ve played since I was little and I still play the game today. I played basketball at my elementary school, St. Cecilia, from Kindergarten till 8th Grade and also played AAU basketball for about 2 years before entering High School. Going into my freshmen year of High School, the first sport I played was basketball. Tryouts began in about the start of November and ended about 2 weeks after. I had made the Freshmen A team. I was excited and as the season progressed, we didn’t win many games but I still had fun playing. Nearing the end of the season, golf was another sport coming up that I also wanted to try and play. I say “try and play” because at the time, I was also going to play AAU basketball. I had set in my mind that I was going to play basketball for all of my four years of high school, but my parents pushed me to tryout for golf. When the basketball season ended, golf tryouts started. Tryouts lasted for about 2 weeks, and I made the JV team. When I found out I made the team, I was very surprised. I hadn’t put in the hard work as others before tryouts came around, but the coach saw potential in me and that I can become a great player. The coach saw so much potential in me, that every week, I kept progressing in skill and fine tuning my mechanics. Halfway through the season, about 4 or 5 weeks after I made the team, my coach gave me the chance to play with the Varsity Golf team for a couple days. I was excited and eager to
During the next two years, my duties included office work along with calling defense for football, running the clock for women’s lacrosse, and inputting the live stats for baseball games. Flash forward to today, I have worked with all of Towson’s major Division one sports along with being the head intern for the department along with overseeing a group of student interns. This internship has both its positive and negative aspects, the positives being that it has allowed me to get more experience in the sports world, along with giving me an idea of the direction I want to go in. While this internship has had many benefits, it also has its draw backs. The draw backs are two-fold, one is the fact that it is low paying in contrast to the amount
Heading to Oracle for the Warriors Game. Getting VIP seats to meet the one and only Stephan Curry. I go to the game I see all the Warriors players on the court preparing for the game. “Wow what an awesome view!” I said “I can’t wait til the game starts!” I go down to the court and get ready to watch the game. I sit down and the clock is at 5 minutes before the game starts. 5 mins later the countdown before the game ends and the game is about the start.

Curry and the rest of the players get on the court, while the opposing team which is a finals rematch of 2015 if the Cavaliers. The Cavaliers have Lebron and Kyrie, two of one of the best players

With six minutes left and 69-94 as I watched Chris Mullin dribble up the court then pass to Stockton to Barkley and they call goaltending ,as the layup rolls out, I yell to get back on defense. With a Twenty Seven point lead i'm thinking about winning a gold metal
Last night I made the 65 minute trip to Mechanicsburg, Ohio to take in the division six ,region 24 playoff game, between undefeated Mechanicsburg(10-0) and 7-3 Miami East. This was my first time seeing Miami East play. I was hoping to see a battle for four quarters, but felt the home team was going to be moving to week twelve.
As the referee blew the whistle, it was game time! My teammate were on her tip toes already in motion to jump, she jumped and smacked the ball before the other opponent could even get a chance to jump! The ball came my way and I dribbled the ball three times, crossed doubled between my legs two times, I lingered up, did the Lebron James basketball shake before I took my shot and put up
In 2014 something happen to me that was amazing. I was at a basketball tournament in big lake. We won our first 3 games and we were in the championship against the other sartell team. The game started and I was nervous because it's against the other sartell team. We were winning by 10 at halftime. Then with 1 minute left they tied it up. I was getting anxious and wanted to win so bad and I got to aggressive and I shoved jack Greenlun in the back on accident. I felt so bad I started crying. I got an intentional foul and they shot two free throws and made both. There was 20 seconds left and we had they ball and my dad called a timeout. We made a play for me to shoot a three to win the game. Logan passed the ball in and I got it. That's when it
Within Hollywood’s movies depiction of drug addiction, many have failed to represent all true aspects that come along with such lifestyles.

With the game tied 6-6 that is when I went into my own little zone and was in my moment. The crowed was electrified and cheering us on. I thought about all the hard work the coaches put us through doing two a days and keeping us late after a hard practice, spending all of that time and hard work just for this one little moment when the game was on the line. Back to reality our quarterback had started the play and it looked like it was going nowhere and we might have to got into overtime. Then after about 6 crazy seconds he threw the ball to our halfback and he broke a couple tackles and the somehow stretched across the goal line by about 2 inches and we had taken the lead 8-6 with 52 seconds to go. When the game clock hit 00:00 for the first time in our schools history the football team had beaten Aberdeen and none of us could believe it. This was a special moment.
One day I went to the park to play basketball on the basketball courts. I met up with some friends, and it was a beautiful day. It was a perfect day to play basketball on, it wasn’t too hot but wasn’t too cold. All of a sudden it started pouring rain, and at the park where we were there was no cover to cover yourself from the rain. So we ended getting all wet, and we ran to the nearest place which had a cover, which was Starbucks. So we stayed in Starbucks until it stopped raining.
