Good afternoon! We had a game last night against Strasburg at home and we came away with a 71-69 victory. Our record stands at 15-7 and tied for 3rd place. It was a hard fought game by both teams and it came down to shooting free throws at the end. I made 1-2 FT with 14 seconds left putting the score at 71-69. Then they came down and we fouled, however there player missed the first free throw. He missed the 2nd free throw on purpose, the ball was tipped around and eventually the clock ran out. We had 4 players in double figures. Mo had 12 points, Jeff Greer had 11, and Cyril had 10. I had 21 points (8-11 2FG, 1-3 3FG, 2-4 FT), 9 assists, and 3 rebounds. Yannick Bokolo is out with a hamstring injury right now so it was extremely nice to see guys set up and contribute in his absence. We play again on Tuesday in the EuroChallenge Final 8 vs a very good Russian team. Should be an interesting game and I will let you know how it goes. Time for me to check out these NCAA games! God Bless you all! Joshua 1:9

Well, well, well it has been quite a long time since I have posted on the blog. We have had quite a few games since I last posted so I am going to give you a summary of what's been going on. We are currently 14-7 in French League play with a loss last Saturday down in Pau. We are tied for 4th place with Roanne and we have a game tomorrow vs Strasburg at home. Hopefully we can play some good basketball and come away with a win. Last Tuesday we played in a French Cup game at home vs. Asvel which we ended up also losing the game 74-70 (so we have no more French Cup games, lose and your done). We are on a 2 game losing skid right now but hopefully that will change on Saturday. We are still playing in the EuroChallenge and we have a game next Tuesday at home. We are in the final 8 right now and we play a very good Russian team. The winner in a best of 3 series advances to the final 4. We have 9 regular season French League games remaining in our schedule. Time is sure flying by over here. Not much else is going on in the basketball world, playing a couple times a week (which I haven't been updating about, my apologies).
Other than that things have been pretty nice over here in France. Weather is nice, a couple days ago it got up to 61 degrees. Spring is right around the corner. Shout out to Lynn Jordheim for getting on my a** about updating the blog, thanks I definitely needed it I have been slacking lately on the updates haha! I will try to do a better job updating, but how can you blame me when I have such a wonderful fiance keeping me company this year. Last year I would always update because it was keeping me sane haha!!! Hope everyone has a wonderful MARCH MADNESS!! How the brackets looking? Take Care and God Bless (Joshua 1:9)
