Game 8
 

Home Up


 

    While I am continually baffled by the refereeing at the Upward games, I will not use that as an excuse. I'm sure that, despite the fact that the teams are supposed to play man to man defense and double teams have been whistled as a violation all season long, the triple teams that Samantha and her teammates faced had nothing to do with the fact that they had difficulty scoring at times. Samantha played her usual strong defense today, and her ballhandling was strong as well. Sam shot the ball a little better today, scoring two baskets, resulting in her point total of four in today's game.

Poor Sam always gets stuck guarding the other teams tallest players, who are usually quite a bit taller than her!

Although the entire game was closer than the final score, the end result was a 30-24 loss for the Storm.
