Mom I can't believe this! I got a letter in the mail stating I will be flown to the New Orleans to participate as a working journalist in the final four!
Steven Thomas has just been informed that he has been selected by the U.S Basketball Writers Association as one of the winners in a writing contest for kids 14 and under. He wrote a story called "Nothing Like the Palestra, and the judges thought it was amazing so he got in.
Hey! I am Susan Carol Anderson I am the other winner! I really enjoyed reading your story I thought it was great.
Steven Thomas has Just met the other winner who was selected by the U.S Basketball Writer Association for the writing contest. Steven absolutely hates Duke because of there amazing ability to never lose and he finds out that Susans favorite team is Duke so he already doesn't like her. In this scene they have just been informed that they needed to write one story each day as features for the final four in March Madness which was a lot of work.
What did we just hear?
I think that we just heard the best player in the country is being blackmailed, and he is being forced to throw away the championship game? What do we do?
Steven Thomas and Susan Carol Anderson (who are starting to become close friends) were by the dock when they saw Chip Graber (The best player in college basketball who is competing in the final four) and a man in a Charcoal Gray Suit talking. The Man and Chip both walked alone into the darkness until they thought that no one could hear them. But what they didn't know was that Steve and Susan could still hear there conversation. Susan and Steve heard how Chip was told by the man that if he didn't purposely lose the championship game; than he would find a way to get his dad fired and his dad would lose all of his wins and titles. They came to the conclusion that the man in the charcoal suit who they didn't recognize was gambling on the game. They didn't know who to tell, and they wanted to stop this before the game was thrown away.
P.S THIS IS THE CLIMAX
You guys have two minutes to explain what is happening here before I call security?
We are here to help you, we heard what happened at the dock and we don't want you to throw the game away.
Steven Thomas have just made it to Chip Graber's room by telling security that they were Chips cousins and that they were here to see him. When security came to ask Chip if Steve was his cousin, he surprisingly answered yes to see what he wanted. Chip gave him and Susan two minutes to talk and they told Chip how they overheard the conversation between him and Professor Whiting and he told Chip how he wanted to help him so he didn't have to throw away the game. So they came up with plan to stop Whiting.
We have to find a way out of this!
As Steve and Susan go to enter a room at the Days Inn hotel they see Whiting, and Dean inside. They planned to keep the kids hostage until the game ended so that they could make sure that MSU would lose the game and Duke would win. Dean also told the kids that the blackmailing plot was all his idea and that the Jurgensen really wasn't the one behind all of this. They then turn on the TV and started watching the basketball game with the kids tied to the couch so they can't escape.
You kids aren't gonna escape till the game is over!
Well Chip does it again.
In the end Jurgersen (Chip's Lawyer) ended up helping the kids escape by beating up and taping Dean to the Couch, and they made it to the basketball game to tell Chip that they were okay. They then told Chip that it was safe to win the game. Chip's team was down by 13 with 6 minutes remaining but he ended up making a great comeback to beat duke. Doctor Koheen ended up getting arrested for attempted blackmail and they all lived, and they all lived happily ever after.
