Today was my first game as a Washington General. The game was in Harlem, NY at the Harlem Armory in front of about 2-3 thousand intercity children. I was very excited for the game even though our wake up call was 5:30am!! Luckily I was able to participate in the game, as one other rookie General and I were the only newcomers that played. The show was so much fun and received priceless reactions from the children. I played in the second quarter and scored a couple lay-ups and a short jump shot. I also have been chosen to be the Generals' player that puts a glass covering over the globetrotters basket (due to my height, ha....ha) in the third quarter (by means of a ladder). I did not receive a very positive response from the crowd to say the least! Overall, our team did a great job in the show and shot lights out. Unfortunately, we came up on the short end once again....losing to the darn globetrotters 92-86!! Maybe next time. As for the next few days, we have a couple more practices before leaving for the Mediterranean on Friday. The journey has just begun!
GO GUILFORD BASKETBALL!!
