Our next game is a completely different story. We didn't play well at all and ended up losing by 20. Give credit to the other team they were way more aggressive than us on both ends of the floor. We got off to an extremely slow start and were down 10 right away. However coming out of halftime we battled back and ended up going up by 2 points in the 3rd quarter. We couldn't sustain our intensity and ended up laying an egg and losing. We definitely learned a lot from that game. The next few days we watched film and looked at our mistakes as well as the things that we did well. We are definitely getting more comfortable with each other and understanding the system better. We will need to buckle down now since our season's first official game is October 13th.
|Getting some instructions from Coach|
Before our first game on the 13th we have a Turkish Cup qualifying tournament that we play at the end of this week. These games count (not towards our league games) if we want to play for the Turkish Cup later on in the year. We are playing 3 games in 3 days out in western Turkey. If we are 1st or 2nd in our pool we qualify for the Turkish Cup. Again, these games count but they aren't counted in terms of our league games. It is kind of confusing but I hope I explained that well enough.
