Never Give Up - Nov 15, 2012

Hello Basketball World,
I hope everyone has been following hoops in Finland this past week. It has been some phenomenal games for Lappeeranta Namika, which we beat two good teams in overtime. As mentioned in my previous blog, we defeated Kauhajoki in overtime. Well yesterday, at home, the same outcomes came upon us again, overtime against Kouvot. In regulation play, Kouvot competed against us throughout the entire game. They ran there X's and O's exactly how we planned them to do so, but we played real hard to make them work even harder. Same as the previous game, we missed an assignment and Kouvot went on a little run, which then we trailed by 10. It was no biggie, the only thing we had to do was to regroup, remain focus and play namika style basketball, which is all out hard work, heart, and with pride. We then switched it up again and went zone, which helped brought us back into the game and with the lead. Our defense was looking excellent, making them take shots outside of there offense. Our offense was looking great, getting our shoots and just playing Namika style basketball. Fourth quarter arrives, and we kept trading baskets and the end of regulation score appeared to be 95 to 95.. No worries for us, we have been in this situation and we knew what we had to do to get the victory. In over time, we did what we knew we where capable of doing and we got the victory. It felt great to win again in overtime. We never gave up and faught to the end. I give credit to my teammate Jason Coop Conley for having an outstanding outing netting 46 points and 9 rebounds. He lead us troops and did a great job. I had a descent game myself, scoring 24 points and grabbed 7 boards. We are on the rise and we will continue to get better each game.. That is all I have for now. Thank you for following my blogs and may god bless you all.
