1.jpg These kids did a better job than the last ones. I think the last teacher tried to add a few too many flourishes to the anthem.

Click to see 32.jpg
32.jpg ...Sue has to pull back to avoid a foul...
Click to see 33.jpg

35.jpg LJ's 3000th point!

36.jpg Hey, the Sky can pull off these baseball lob passes. Why can't we?
Click to see 37.jpg
37.jpg Well, they can't do anything with them yet, but still.

38.jpg "Michael, I'm whispering so the players won't hear that you don't know what you're doing." Michael did overturn his call.

Click to see 51.jpg
51.jpg Typical Betty drive...
Click to see 52.jpg
52.jpg ...where she pulls back to the surprise of the defender.

Click to see 54.jpg
54.jpg OK, that shot didn't go but she got her rebound...
Click to see 55.jpg
55.jpg ...but has to take this difficult hooky shot.
Click to see 56.jpg
56.jpg Flopping 101. At this point it could actually be a foul. Stacey is more or less set. Note how flopping makes it look phony...
Click to see 57.jpg
57.jpg OK, now kick that other foot out and roll back on the foot that has your weight on it...
Click to see 58.jpg
58.jpg Yeah, yeah, it looked very impressive, Stacey.

60.jpg OK, Dave looks red faced and angry but he really wasn't. He was explaining things in a very quiet methodical voice.

72.jpg Fake left...
Click to see 73.jpg

Click to see 78.jpg

Click to see 87.jpg
87.jpg I've seen LJ make a no-look shot like this but Betty doesn't have the hang of it yet.
Click to see 88.jpg
88.jpg And what win would be complete without Izzy's new reverse layup?
