It certainly helps a team of mostly 6-foot tall white guys to help an explosive point guard who can penetrate into the line and kick out to his shooters. That is exactly what happened in game two of the Harvest hoops since for our maroon team. Last week, Devaughn was late, butwe got it rolling once he got there. In this game, it certainly helped to have him for his quickness and ability to score the ball as well.
We took a four-point lead into halftime as we fought and clawed for rebounds throughout the half. I don’t know if we’ll ever have a size advantage against a team, but we were once again going up against some big boys, including the team captain Jon Lindstrom.
After the break, we began to click, and Paul Von Tobel, who missed the first game, caught fire from beyond the 3-point line. Joe and Eric also hit big 3-pointers in the second half to squelch any thought of a comeback for our opponents. Devaughn also had some big buckets, and his presence on the court made life easier for our shooters. The end result was a 15-point margin of victory against a solid opponent.
Before the game we met for our first official devotional. We’ve decided to encourage each other and hold each other accountable for how much time we are spending in God’s Word. It’s a blessing to have brothers in Christ who care and want to help you in your walk. We had a good discussion about God’s promises, and it was cool to hear everyone being transparent about what they read and how it applies.
