Cheers of the crowd ring in my ears,
Players from both teams jump up to block a shot.
I slap down the ball making it fall into Bridgette´s hands.
Bridgette starts running down the court, while I run beside her.
She passes the ball to me, and I launch it in the air.
The ball spins around the edge of the rim
Time comes to a complete stop as it hovers over the edge.
Finally the ball slips through the net,
with a crisp Whoosh sound.
The buzzer sends out a deafening noise.
Bridgette gives me a high five, Graysen jumps on my back,
but the most proud of me is my coach.
