Last 7th Grade Basketball Game

____  Two losses tonight, both the A and B games.  Tonight was their final game as 7th graders.  They are having a tournament on Sat. afternoon, here in town.  One of the boy's Dad is coaching.  I don't know how many of the boys plan to play.  The A team had 2 wins and the B team had some.  (Lost count)  Their ball handling improved as the year progressed, and more shots made.  Also they are all busy growing!

7th Grade Rams vs Ogden

____The boys played vs Odgen at the Rec. Center in Jefferson last night.  The score was close most of the game but lost by a few points only.  They had an easy win the B game. The boys kept feeding the ball  to the players that hadn't scored before and they got some baskets too.  

 ______The usual after game shaking hands with the opponents, than here was Calvin shaking hands with the main official----I missed getting a picture of the hand shake and took it so quick it didn't get focused, but you get the idea!

Two More Games

 ____Tuesday  Calvin had a game against Nevada @ the Rec. Center.  They lost by 2 points less than their first game against Nevada.  Progress???
 Last night the boys played against Panorama in Scranton.  Their first time to play in the "Trojan Dome", as Jeff's bunch had named it.  It was still used as a Elementary School then, so not many games there now.  I knew the lighting would be poor, so didn't take my camcorder.  I enjoyed keeping stats for a change.  They had it nice on warm on a cold, windy evening.  (I played in that gym in high school!  It was one of the biggest and best in the county then.)

Basketball at Gilbert

 ____Basketball at Gilbert last evening.  Two games, two losses.  They didn't look good and didn't play well together most of the time, but some of the time did well.    Calvin had 4 points the second game. Made one and intercepted the inbound pass and made another.  He had a few other good shots that didn't fall.

_______This team knew what it meant to "block out"  (Of course being bigger didn't hurt either.)  Our boys had some good shots, that just didn't drop and the other team's off balance shots, would fall!  Discouraging!
