Hey Cane Gang,
This past Sunday we took on Boston College and what a nice day it was.Seems to me that BC brought the weather down with them, because it was a lotchillier than usual in South Florida. To my teammates and I, it was freezing inthe gym. Something we aren’t use to! The frosty gym didn’t phase us one bitthough, as we were taking on the Eagles. We got steals, turned them over, gotrebounds, and hustled all across the court.
In my opinion, it has been a long time since we had agame like this one. It was just filled with entertainment, enthusiasm, and flatout effort. I had so much fun playing that game and it wasn’t for myself butfor my teammates. Just being able to see them on the court doing well andsmiling made everything 10 times better. The win was just the icing on thecake.
This past week we had a ton of time to get better becausewe had a much needed bye week. This season is a long one so u need time toyourself and to rest your body. Coach gave us that time to rest and also thattime to come closer as a team on the court because chemistry is what matters.This Thursday we head up to North Carolina as we take on the Wolfpack at NCState. This is going to be fun. Only a couple games left, why not have fun!?
