Monday night was the fourth summer league game. And we had another close game despite how it started out.
We decided to try a new strategy, and it pretty much failed. (Our captain took full credit for his idea in the official recap. It was quite funny, actually.) The result was we only scored 4 or 5 points in the first half.
But then we went back to normal for the beginning of the second half, and we really turned it around. We went on a 7-1 run and were actually ahead at one point. Sadly, we couldn't keep it together after that, and we wound up losing 14-17 yet again. Sigh. It's time we won another game. Really.
My favorite moment of the night was when I lopped it over a defended to our captain after he repeatedly told me not to do it. I had to let it go since I had a high stall count on me, and he got it. Actually, I was very confident in that throw even if he didn't think it would work. I don't think he was happy until he caught it, however. We even went on to score that point.
On the plus side, we were playing JV's team. We've had a friendly rivalry going on for years. As in when our teams play, we always guard each other since we're about the same speed. He's just a great all around guy to joke with on the sidelines. That made it well worth going down for even if we lost.
