Ds plays JV basketball. They have won the last 6 games.
I guess lucky 7 wasn't in the cards.
They didn't start out well and really came back in the 2nd half to only lose by one point is great. But its hard to think of the what ifs.
My son is upset as the last points were on him and making free throws. Missed the first and tried to miss the second so they could rebound and shoot. What do ya know it goes in.
He made a shot in the last game with 8 seconds to go. That tied the game. They won in OT bt 4.
Would have been nice for him to tie the game again.
They are 11-6 so we cant complain to much.
Just leaves a heaviness on your mind/heart. If you could turn back time.
Oh well another game tomorrow. Life goes on!
losing builds character, keeps kids focus on working hard and teaches a life lesson...
dealing with adversity...
My DDs high school football teams last 3 seasons went 1-9, 0-10 and last year 4-6...players and parents were so thrilled @ winning 4 games you would've thought we won the state championship! where we used to cheer for first downs we had touchdowns!
good luck, kids are resilient, I'm sure they'll be fine!

I think I can 1up you on that one. DD has been playing basketball since 2nd grade with the same group of girls. It's their senior year, last year to play together. Tonight they lost by 20. They played their hearts out but couldn't make the shots. DD said the most frusterating thing is the bickering about who wasn't doing what. For her senior year it's not fun for her right now! What advice do you have for that? They are 4 and 11. She is so stressed about this being her last year.
I agree about losing, this team has come along way. This is their best year yet.
My son and one other player are the only ones to have played since 4th grade.
Some games you just want to hate the ball for not dropping in the basket. I think it has a mind of its own.
My dd also plays and girls are another story. To be a fly on the locker room wall. I hate to put blame on others. But tonight i did. Even my son took himself out of a game once because he was playing bad. I wish the coach would have taken out someone tonight. Instead he took out someone who was productive.
After we go over the bad we always look at the good and leave it there.
