On to the Cup Championship

Well, well, well...BCM Gravelines is going to be playing in the French Cup Championship on May 16th. Last night we had the semi-final game of the French Cup and we came away with a win verse Rouen. It was a great game from the opening tip until the final buzzer. We ended up winning 72-69. We extended our lead a couple times to 10 points throughout the game but Rouen very gave up and they fought until the final buzzer. We ended up being up by 2 points with 17 seconds to go and I got fouled. I went to the line to shoot my two free throws and I missed the first one. I ended up making the second free throw and going ahead by 3 points. They got a couple shots on the final possession to try and tie the game but none of them went down. Below is a little highlight from last nights game. Also below is highlights from our game last Saturday at home verse Poitiers. We were all pretty excited about the win last night and it will be great for us to compete for a championship come May 16th. We had 3 guys in double figures last night. I had 21 points (7-14 TFG, 2-7 3FG, 5-7 FG, 5-6 FT), 5 rebounds, 4 assists, and 5 TO. Demetris Nichols had 17 points, 7 rebounds and JK Edwards had 16 points and 7 rebounds. It was a good win for us and we are looking forward to the championship game, but first we have a game on Friday in Nancy. It will be a big game for us but a tough one since it is on the road and we are tied with them for 4th place right now.

Well I am going to relax and watch a movie. I hope you have a wonderful night back home. It was 82 degrees here today and it is making me really want summer to come around. I was very comfortable wearing shorts and a t-shirt all day. I will fill you in on how the game goes on Friday. Goodnight and God Bless! (Joshua 1:9)

  3. Man, I was looking Atlanta Hawks... You are the Mike Bibby of the French league :) Haha !It's a compliment of course.Moreover, I wondered. What is the meaning of this: (Joshua 1:9)
    It can be personal. But since the first day that I follow your blog. I have this question in mind.
    Congratulation for the Game VS Nancy and thanks
