An anticipated tournament with an unexpected finish.
lets do this!
I don't know about this...
Oh come on!
Fine...we'll do it.
One day after getting together to play some basketball, I asked my cousins if they would like to play in this basketball tournament. My cousins seemed very hesitant but I kept encouraging them to play.
Have some confidence. We got this!
My cousins finally agreed to participate in the tournament with me.
Its alright! We will bounce back.
Every day after we agreed to play, we would get together in the gym to get some practice in.
The day of the tournament had arrived and our competition was looking fierce. We had to win at least two of our three placement games in order to continue. I had told my cousins to have some confidence and that anything was possible.
Our first game started quickly and we were not doing well. We ended up losing the game by twenty points. My cousins were demoralized, but I continued to encourage them.
We had to win our next two games in order for us to continue to the playoffs. We took a break and began our second game. We competed hard with the opposing team and went back and forth.
