My teammates were Aiden, Micah, Isaiah, Sammy, Richard and me. My dad, the coach, was there too. The girls basketball team was practicing too. The girls basketball players were Lily, Alyssa, Harper, Rae, Aubrey, Layla. We split the court in half. The right side was the boys basketball. The left side was girls basketball. We finish our last basketball practice. So did the girls. My mom got sno cones for the boys and girls basketball team. We all enjoyed our sno cones and I said, “Let’s play half court knock out.” The boys played, the girls watched, We played 3 times. The first time we played my dad won by a three against Micah. The second time we played Micah won by a half court shot. Then it started the last time we played. It shook the room! …show more content…
