Week 7 encapsulated freshmen basketball in many ways. We start the week with a win over another local school playing without one of our better players who was away on a family vacation. Play a road game on Tuesday. The officials showed up late and asked me the game time. Then one official delayed the game so he could find a uniform to wear as he forgot to bring his. Ironically, he gave me a technical the first time that I said anything to him, without raising my voice, when I said, “Way to be professional” in response to his comment. Wednesday, we played our third game in three days and missed four players who had to go to a guitar performance for class credit, had another player injured early in the game, and had two players sitting out the first half because they missed the bus and showed up late because they had club soccer practice.
