What up What up!! The season is finally over and I have made my way back to Louisville, Ky. The last time I blogged, my team was in a best of 5 playoff series and we were up 1-0. The second game proved to be a very tough game at home and Givat showed a lot of fight. We jumped on top of them early in the game but they showed character in fighting back. But in the end, our team was just hitting on all cylinders and one sign of that was a shot I made at the end of the game. I was falling out of bounds behind the backboard as the shot clock ran down; shot the ball over the backboard and hit all nets as the horn sounded. That definitely send their team into a deflation and we went on to win game two 81-67. I had 20pts, 7 rebs and 6 asst in that contest which put us up 2-0.

Game 3 was back on the road and Givat jumped on us early 21-12 after one quarter because we came out the gates very sluggish and slow. A few minutes in the second quarter the tides had turned and we had turned up the defense. this allowed us to get out in transition and get some easy dunks on te fast break. The games momentum had jumped to our side by half time as we took a 37-34 lead. After halftime, we could sense defeat and the game turned into a complete route as we won 90-64. I finished the game with 17pts, 4rebs and 6 assts, with most of the work coming in the first half. So we finished our season on a good note winning our consolation series 3-0 and feeling pretty good.

It was a good season for myself, I finished 4th in the league in scoring(17.6ppg) and 1st in free throw percentage(90.7%). Im looking forward to being home and taking a few weeks off then get into my off-season workouts.

Basketball Camp is coming up soon so make sure you register your child for camp and look forward to keeping you posted throughout the summer as the foundation has events around the city. God is Good....



  1. Larry, come back to Belgrade! Red Star fans asked these days from Red Star Board and manager to bring you back! You said before that you liked it here, so maybe you could really consider coming back.
    We had Andre Owens and Lawrence Roberts this season and they fit really well. The 3 of you would make excellent combo.

    Best of luck
