Scoring Burst

Julie finally showed her offensive power in a freshman game. It happened near the end of the 1st quarter after she had taken a hit to her face. First she hit a short jumper from left side base line. The next trip to the offensive end she put up a 3 point shot from the top of the free throw area a foot beyond the circle.
Her next 3 point shot was less than a minute later from close to the same area, but slightly opposite side of the court.
The quarter ended and a few minutes into the 2nd quarter, Julie drove the base line and put up a floater from about 10 feet away from the basket.

Julie ended the game with 10 points, her first time scoring double figures!

J & K Basketball Pics

We left the farm at 8:30 AM & drove to the 5th-6th Center in Brownsville to watch Julie play basketball. We make the 90 mile drive in around an hour and a half most weekends when the grandkids are playing ball. In the summer it is softball/baseball and in the winter it is basket ball. Julie has been playing nearly the entire game most of the time. She jumps center and plays forward during the rest of the game. There are two girls and four boys usually there on her team for the games. The Celtics have won all of their games (4) so far this season. After Julie's game was over we drove to KYROCK Elementary for Kyle's game. His team is the Tigers and Brent is the coach. There are three girls and 4 boys on the Tigers. In this league it is more about teaching the game rules and some skills instead of winning or losing. Brent does a good job of letting each kid have a turn of handling the ball and trying to get a shot. We really get a kick out of watching the little ones learning and making mistakes. Most all of the fans cheer when a basket is made for either team.
Kyle is a bit ahead of most of the kids. He still has a lot to learn though.
