Bnai Brith Basketball

For the first time since I was in Israel for the year "('99-00) I played organized basketball. I was asked to join Schon Packaging.

I was named the teams starting point guard, I did a decent job of bringing the ball up and passing it to a wing to break up a zone. But we had some problems, this was my first game with this team, I didn't really know who can do what, and where they like to be on the court. Additionally, there were only about 3 possessions that I was in the game for, where the ball was touched by more than 3 people before a shot was taken. Despite being a bigger team, we got out rebounded and outphysicaled (Is that a word) by the purple team.

Ideally, I wouldn't play the point, I like to play on the wing, where I have more freedom. But for now the team needs me to play the point, so that's where I am.

For me, I look at this game a preseason or exhibition game. I know what I have to do next week for the team to win. I must be more aggressive. I think I took 3 shots, and got to the free throw line 2 times ( I hit 2-4). I need to drive to basket, create my own shot, crash the board and play physical on D.

I don't know the final score, but I do know that we were down 8, and the purple team went a big run scoring like 16 points in a row, and we got blown out. Hopefully next sunday I will be able to write about a win.

So, when you say you're the bigger team, what exactly do you mean by that?

The players on our team are taller and wider then players on the other team. Sadly we didnt use our size as an advantage
