In life, there are some parties that you just aren’t invited to. You may be too old, too young or just not cool enough! Some parties, you don’t even hear about until the next day, because you were not invited. Well, the coaches were obviously not invited to the party the Unlimited team had on Friday night, because this team came in looking tired! The Unlimited soldiers were dragging! The lay up lines looked like a pajama party. The pre-game drills looked like that 8AM chemistry class back in college. We were just hoping the game was not a sleep over! Lucky for us, Winslow Travel did not get an invite to the party that was about to happen.
Unlimited has been unlimited!!!!! Unlimited amo, Unlimited defense and Unlimited rebounding! This has been the norm for the past 7 weeks and this sleep over/holiday party was nothing to snooze about! Unlimited jumped on the board early, with Nyle Coleman attacking the basket again finishing with 4 points, 1steal and 3 assist! This early attack was followed by Chase Murray who displayed one of his most dominating performances ever, finishing with 9 points, 8 rebounds and 1steal and a drive to the basket that resemble Kevin Durant! Hamas Duren aka “The Quarterback” continued to dominate the glass with 4 rebounds 4 points and 1 steal! Ian Harvey Williams added 2 points 2 steals and 1 rebound and continued to live up to his “energizer bunny” status, while Joe Green aka “The Glue” grabbed 4 rebounds, scored 2 points and had 3 assists in a well rounded game. After sleep walking early, Marcus Miller awoke like he was in the middle of a Nightmare grabbing a monsterous 6 rebounds, 2 steals and scoring a point. Bryce Miller added an additional 3 rebounds and clogged up so many jump balls he was invited to be the third member of Kriss Kross (you get it, Jump)! Raja Coleman ended the first half assault with a base line floater so sweet, I booked an appointment with Dr. Drain immediately following the game! He also added 2 steals and 1 assist. Unlimited is up by 20 before they had a chance to hand out the party favors!!!!!!! If you think I forgot someone, I didn’t.
Speaking of parties, some times it’s a coming out party! After a disappointing first half, Xavier Hindes gave coach Erik the same look Michael Jordan gave Dean Smith after his third year of UNC. He gave coach E the “I’m tired of holding back look” and went bananas in the second half! Scoring 7 of his 9 points in such an aggressive manner, coach Jessica had to make sure the video game we were watching was approved for all audiences!!!!!!! The X-man nabbed 2 steals to solidify his best game since the inception of Unlimited. Final score Unlimited 33, Winslow Travel 16.
