So far basketball has been going really good. Our team name is the Wildcats. My friends and I did not like it at all, but these other kids on my team liked it so we compromised and made it into the Kentucky Wildcats. Even though we’re not from Kentucky we like the name a lot better. My first game was 1/8/o8. The team we first played was a pretty good team. The kid I was guarding was good — man, that guy was good. He got away from me which usually doesn’t happen. I scored 8 points that game. The first shot was a beautiful swish. I haven’t done a layup yet — just wait, I’ll do one.
Last night we had our second basketball game. I made the last shot before the buzzer. We lost the game though and I wasn’t very happy.
