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. Anchored by my defensive prowl. We got stops and extra offensive possessions. Honestly this was the best game we played as a whole team. We stayed together the entire game. Although the game was stopped to due to the weather conditions outside thunder and lighting messed with the power we had a 20 min wait during halftime. But that didn't stop us as at all. We continue our rolled and the intermission seemed like it never happened. The game was tight, I just kept telling my teammates that "if we don't open this game up. The refs are going to take it from us" and that they did. Refs usually favor the other team for some reason. There calls were very bad and unfair to us because, it wasn't even. Alen my Point guard came down and hit a 3 that put us up 2 or 1 I believe. But the team came right back and got fouled as soon as they attacked the basket. So in the closing seconds coach called a play for Milo's (shooting guard) me pick and roll; if he didn't get a way to get the ball to me off the screen it was for me to post.

So balls in play we run the screen and roll. Milo's came off the screen and he had a clear path to the basket which tied the game. Next play down, refs called another foul in there favor now Zeta is up two with 30 something seconds left. We manage to inbound the ball and get fouled. Milo's at the line for 2, he takes a deep breath shoots and misses the 1st one as soon as he missed the lights went out in the gym again. When he missed the free throw our whole team spirits just declined dramatically. We had 30 minute intermission due to the light situation with only 12.5 seconds left. Even if we had a chance to win our bodies were no longer warm and muscles weren't loose any more. Odds were truly against us.

Although this was my toughest loss of the season because it was in our hands. It was snatched at the last few moments of the game.
I'm truly happy in my teams play for the first time since being here in Montenegro everyone showed heart, passion and a strong love for the game. That's why I named this post Teamwork make the dream work. If we play out the season with that kind of heart and teamwork we can pull off some major wins for this ball club before this season is over.

Shoutout to my team "STRSLJEN"
