Tough Loss

Running a play
Good morning everyone!  Our last game we played was on Monday against Besiktas and we lost by 5, 64-69.  As you can see by the score it was a low scoring, grind out type of game.  We got off to a terrible start in the first quarter trailing 3-14 to start the game.  We were completely out of sync and were getting beat in transition all the time.  However, in the second half we came alive and inched our way back.  Finding ourselves down by only 2 points with a 1:30 to go in the game.  On the next possession Besiktas hit a 3 pointer to make it a 5 point game and it stayed that way the last minute.  I ended the game with 12 points (4-8 2fg, 0-3 3fg, 4-4 ft), 9 assists, 5 rebounds, and 2 steals.  Our record is 8-6 in 7th place alone in the league.  Our next game is on Saturday out in Izmir, Turkey where we play Karsiyaka.  They are a very good team and are in 4th place in the league.  It will be another great opportunity to go out there and try and get a win on the road.  I am looking forward to it.
Talking strategy

Other than that everything is going well out here in Turkey.  I want to give a S/O to my sister Bryn Woodside for having an excellent Junior year in basketball and academics.  Extremely proud of her!  Have a wonderful Thursday!  Time for me to go and get ready for practice.  God Bless!
