Defenders 13U Team Loses to Brooklyn Saints – Where is the Fire?

On 05/19/12, the 13U Defenders (Brown) suffered a character-building loss to the Brooklyn Saints 7th-8th grade girls team, a team that was faster, bigger underneath and stronger on the boards. In the first quarter, the Saints scored early. Defenders Shaunna was fouled on a rebound and made one foul shot. Jada made a steal and scored the layup, then did the same thing again.. Shaunna scored with a strong move underneath. Imani did a good job pressing the opposing guards, but the Saints were ahead 24-8 at the half. Alex had two steals in the third quarter and Jewel forced a three-second call. Unfortunately, the Saints were faster on the breaks and were able to make layups easily. Myasia scored for the Defenders with a layup near the end of the game and Shaunna scored off the short jumper. Final score Saints 39-12

Lessons learned from this game: Have someone stay back to prevent the fast break. There is no jogging in basketball. Follow your shot. Ask yourself: Is there a fire in my belly?
