Hey everyone! Just checking in from Galway. I wanted to take the time to mention the D2 Lady Titans team I coach here for their efforts in Wednesday nights game. It was probably the most exciting game we’ve had yet in terms of lead changes and competitiveness. We came out strong and fought to win the first quarter. The team went on to finish the half down 8pts. The third quarter was a struggle, up and down the score went, but the ladies stayed tough and responded well to everything thrown at them. Changing the defense on the fly (with less than 4 minutes to go down by 7pts) the Titans forced turnovers and converted on the offensive end to make a 8-0 run to take the lead. I had never been more excited for them, jumping up and down on the sidelines after every steal and made basket, I was so proud. In the last minute we suffered a bit of a melt down and gave away numerous (precious) chances to close out the game. With under 10 seconds to go, the score level, we committed a turnover and then fouled the opposing team sending them to the free-throw line. They made 1 out of 2 leaving us with a 1pt loss. An absolute heartbreaker. I really believe we deserved the win, but we lacked poise and composure down the stretch and paid for it in the end. Great overall effort, a lot can be learned from it. What an exciting game to be apart of.
