A Game of Nerves
The game against ASC was a tough one. It was not as we expected. It was a tight game. I was not well to start off and some troubles were getting on to me. I was feeling very nervous as the game was an important match for us. I remembered losing to ASC once when I first played in the carnival last year. It was a harsh experience back then for me.
Before every match, I wished coach would not put me as the starting 5 .Nonetheless, I still start the game as the small forward. Overall, the game was well played. We lost not just on the offense but on the defense too. We were not quick enough to get back to our zone to stop the fast breaks that were set upon us. We were physically weak. Turnovers are really frustrating and I had a few turnovers as well, causing me to be really frustrated. These turnovers really cost us the game.
I was foul at the 3 point line at the last few seconds. The score was 43-46, and it was our chance to tie the game. Due to the pressure set upon me, I missed all 3 free throws. The feeling just literally sucks. In the end, we did not get the draw we wanted and lost the game. I hope I can get another chance to prove my worth on the court. That is if I have another chance against ASC. Well played game. I hope to play with you guys again.
