Game 2
 

Home Up


 

    Game two for Samantha's basketball team looked like it was going to be a lot like the first game - close throughout. They fell behind early 4-8, but fought back to take the lead at halftime 12-10. The second half was all Oxford Bank, as they pulled away and never looked back. By the time it was all over, they had secured their first victory of the year with a 28-14 defeat of the Mark Carney State Farm team.

    Sam had a decent game overall, but she threw away a few too many passes for my taste. She did play some good aggressive defense, which helped make up for her passing mistakes. She made some nice passes too, so it wasn't all bad while playing guard. She wound up with 2 points on the day, although a few other shots just missed. After a couple of weeks of practice before their next games, things should be looking up!

Game 2 - vs. Mark Carney State Farm

Samantha was moved from forward to guard for today's game, becoming the primary ball handler on the second unit.

Sam had a few good looks at the baskets today, including this basket.

Here is another shot of Sam dribbling the ball up the court.

Sam got back on defense ahead of her teammates on this play.

Sam did a good job of playing pressure defense throughout the game...

...contesting passes and shots.

The final score was a resounding 28-14 victory, the first of the season for Sam and her teammates.
