6-2 French League, 1-1 EuroChallenge

Hey there! I am currently sitting in a hotel room waiting to go to Hungry tomorrow morning to play another game in the EuroChallenge. We play a Hungarian team (1-1) and it should be a good game. I know that I have a lot of catching up to do on the blog, I guess thats what happens when the family is in town for a week you tend to forget about updating the blog. So please bear with me throughout this update:

Nov. 20th- We played a French League game at home vs. Pau. We won 80-68, we had 3 guys in double figures. Bokolo had 21 points, Johnson had 18 points and I ended with 17 points (2-8 2FG, 1-5 3FG, 10-13 FT), and 11 assists. It was the first double double for me of the year and it was nice because that was the first game my family got to see. It was a good win for us and it brought our record to 5-2 overall in the French League.

Nov. 23rd- We played one of our EuroChallenge games at home. It was not a good game for us. This is the worst that we have been beaten since I have been a part of BCM. We got beat by a very good Russian team 58-98. It was a 40 point shellacking! We had a few guys that were injured and we were definitely out matched. One of there players scored 27 points inside in the first half. We didn't get any stops on defense and they really outplayed us from top to bottom. Enough about that game ha!

Nov. 27th- Last night we played an away game vs. Strasbourg. They are an excellent home team and it was a fight all the way to the finish. We came out on top 90-81. We had 4 guys scoring double figures. Cyril had 13 points, Issa had 14 points, Bokolo had 20 points. I had 21 points (5-9 2FG, 0-3 3FG, 11-13 FT) 4 assists, and 2 steals all coming in the 2nd half. I got called for 2 fouls (terrible calls) right away in the first half and I had to sit the entire half. I was quite frustrated at halftime and the fire was burning inside me. I keep my focus and decided to be even more aggressive in the 2nd half. It ended up being a good night for our team and a great win for us. Our record stands at 6-2 in the league and tied or first place. Hopefully we can keep things rolling next weekend when we play Asvel at home.

Like I said before we fly out to Hungry for a EuroChallenge game tomorrow morning. It will be a new adventure for me heading to a country that I have never been to before. I will let you know how the game goes in the next update. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving (we have plenty to be thankful for)! Shout out goes to my Mom and Dad, thanks for spending a week with AJ and I here in France. It was great to be with you guys and spend some time with you, we had a blast and are thankful you came over. Not to mention the Thanksgiving feast we had at the house was EXCELLENT!! God Bless (Joshua 1:9)
