LEVEL Basketball – Game 8 (28-46)

Man, we can’t seem to get on track or make a shot. I’m particularly shooting poorly right now. It bugs when you work so hard to get the position you want, fight for the shot you want and it doesn’t drop. Anyway, I continue to practice and I am being more aggressive inside. I got to the line twice last night, which is new for me… Too bad I didn’t make any of my free throws. Here’s this weeks press release.

LEVEL UNABLE TO KEEP BUDGET UNDER CONTROL
Drops Second Straight Shorthanded Game
(For Immediate Release)

Arroyo Grande, CA – Like a nightmare that you can’t wake up from, LEVEL, once again, is watching a good season turn bad. With wins in games 4 and 5, LEVEL looked to change their seasons’ fortune by taking the remainder of this season’s games. Instead, after dropping two straight, LEVEL was looking to turn things around with a Budget(ary) win. So with the season on the line, “Hot Shot” Tom Adamski sidelined and “The Playground” Daniel Parks still MIA, LEVEL would need more than their stellar defense to get back on track.

However, right after tip-off it became clear, like watching Michigan State vs. North Carolina, that LEVEL was just out of their league. Watching shot after shot rim out, LEVEL struggled to find a rhythm that wasn’t a death march. No one on the LEVEL side was getting to the basket consistently. Long-range shots caught iron and fell into the awaiting hands of the Budget Ballers, and when LEVEL finally got to the free throw line, they would shoot a season low 15% from the charity stripe. “Lemons… It was all lemons,” said Hank, who went 0 for 4 from the field and the line. “We threw up lemons. We didn’t come away with a win, but I did make a wonderful Lemon Sorbet.” His sorbet was good, and it’s a good thing, as Hank may find himself looking for a new job if LEVEL can’t find a way to win a game.

LEVEL’s defense, the highlight of the team, kept the Budget shooters under control. Led by Miguel and Phil, the defense would come up with a number of steals. The highlight of the game occurred during a Budget breakaway when “Sasquatch” Grondin executed a monstrous block that sent the ball half way down the court. The block even elicited cheers from the Budget bench. Dan Connolly and Steven Hasagawa would combine for a fantastic defensive effort. “They were strong and physical. Our finesse style didn’t matchup well against them,” stated Steven while handling his taxes after the game. “Luckily for me, I’m getting money back. I’m in the black somewhere.”

LEVEL will have next week off, and hopefully during that time, they can find some answers for their shooting woes, or they may never wake up from this nightmare.
