Here's an update from Georgia State Assistant Coach "CP":
After a welcoming break from all things basketball yesterday afternoon, this AIA team was well rested to take on a busy day. Last night, the team took part in quality fellowship over Kentucky fried chicken and New York style pizza at the hotel... this was a treat!
This morning the team awoke well rested with great energy. This fed into a group discussion in our team time commenting on the last few days and our thoughts as Christian brothers. Soon after, we left for a hospital to visit a group of young kids with cancer and their parents. This was a heartwarming experience for us as the kids were incredibly excited to see us with smiles lighting up the room. The highlight was a dance off with Tulsa power forward TK Edogi and a couple of the girls. Needless to say, everyone won.
We returned to the hotel for some rest before our late night game against De La Salle. They came into the game as one of the top teams in the UAAP. A competitive game throughout, we only pulled away in the fourth quarter when our defense took over and we were able to get out in transition. Wearing a little thin, we had to rely on spot minutes from our team manager, Will Edison, who showed why the Ohio State intramural leagues should be worried heading into the upcoming season.
God's love continues to work through each and every one of us. The way we share with each other both on and off the court is commendable and a huge reason for this team's success. Big day tomorrow and we are just pulling into the hotel now at 1:00am.
Until next time, God Bless!
