My First Basketball Game
As this is my first formal basketball game in my 20 years of life, I felt rather nervous. I was also lost on court. I have made mistakes and missed 3 out of 3 shots. It was nerve wrecking for me when I was on court, with all the opponents pressuring me when I have the ball.
Thankfully, besides the coach telling me what to do, there are my team mates who are there to motivate me and encouraging me even when mistakes were done. I have also learnt that I need to trust my team mates, especially during fast breaks, even though we did not have much training together.
What cheers me up the most over the missed shots, were my steals for the game. I am very happy to have made at least 3 steals for my debut game. And most importantly, I thank God for giving me this opportunity, and these team mates who would guide me as I grow in the team.
