This week I watched an NCAA basketball game and was absolutely amazed at the talent level.
The point guards at the basketball game were handling the ball with incredible skill. One point guard took the ball coast to coast with lightning speed and precision, weaving in and out of 4 defenders, and eventually passing the basketball to a wide open player for a 3 point shot. The forwards had unbelievable post up moves and could hit mid range jumpers with ease. The centers blocked shots and played tough defense. A prominant player, a 3 time Finals Most Outstanding Player, scored only 8 points but contributed as a relentless defender and rebounder. Most if not all of the players had high percentages from the free throw line. There was team defense and passing and sportsmanship. In the end, the University of Connecticut Women’s basketball team prevailed over Notre Dame’s Womens basketball team.
Anyone who is not a fan of women’s basketball is not a fan of basketball. It is fundamentals, athleticism, and truly a joy to watch.
