What's up Eurobasket fam,

I'm back for my second post. Yesterday was my first home game here in Plav. It was definitely long over due, the pressure was on being that Ive been here 3 weeks and no one has seen me play a minute.The atmosphere in the gym was unreal mostly because everyone came to see me play. To my understanding that has been there biggest turn out since starting this team. We were up against Our local rival Berane who is only a 30 minute drive up the road. Definitely a win-able game for us. We went down early but fought back through the whole game. The anticipation for me to score was crazy. As one of my teammates got doubled teamed on the wing, he passed it I attacked and did a reverse lay-up; and the crowd erupted with "Kris! Kris! Kris! " chants. Anytime I touched the ball whether it was a steal, block, rebound, assist, a regular pass they went crazy. But nothing like when I got a fast break dunk. I honestly wanted to have a great outing in my first home game. Show the people my heart and passion And love for the game. And that I did, no official stats yet but I believe I finished with a double double 10+ rebounds and 5 blocks and a few assists and steals. Although my night ended early due a confrontation with another player In a tussle for the ball, the player swinged on me as we fell to the floor. How I was brought on basketball you never let know one take the ball from you at all cost. But when you swing means you were trying to harm me. Me being aware of fines, I just got up real fast turned my body. I guess the other team thought I was going to stoop to his level retaliate, but I didn't and I still got ejected. I was upset cause my team needed me in that last 4 min stretch. But before getting ejected as I walked to the bench the crowd started the "Kris! Kris! Kris! " chants again but it was non-stop.'so as I left the gym and headed to the locker room I walked along the crowd and fans were jumping on me , slapping 5's, and screaming my name. My whole basketball career I was a role player and now being one of the main options , so this all new to me and I'm learning to embrace my role on this team. I'm truly humbled and all the love I received is well appreciated. And my game is only on the rise, I will continue to leave it all on the floor and play my heart out!

Go Strsljen!

hope you all enjoyed,Deuces till next time

Kris

Teamwork make the dream work!- Feb.28, 2013  (by Kristin)

So this weekend we matched against another zeta team who isn't doing so well record wise. Going to any game we always favored as the underdogs. I've learned that being the underdog is not always a bad thing; pressure isn't on us really it's much more on the other team. Who wants to lose to the team with zero wins. Nobody! On paper this team wasn't that much better then us as well. But we always start up slow in every game. But we manage to keep it close [read more]
Tough times don't last, Tough people do!- Feb.20, 2013  (by Kristin)

So I know I missed a week, so I have a lot to touch base on. On another note we took two more tough losses. The toughest thing for me is losing this much;coming from successful programs in the united states. Losing is something I will never settle for or sit right with me. I'm learning that each game has a valued lesson in it for me as I continue my pro career. Dealing with many trails and tribulations adjusting to life here, I use basketball as an escape goat [read more]
