The Lisbon Boys Basketball team has to face a lot of competition and adversity this year, but that is not stopping them. This season they are expected to do well due to having excellent speed and athleticism. They are outstanding when they come ready to play. It’s about starting the game off and running early, instead of late. The team is motivated by working hard in practice and competing against each other to learn new strategies and to make their game better. They are dedicated to the game of basketball and want to make the most out of it. Strengths in the team are their athleticism, shooting all around and experience.

Basketball is a sport that teaches you about playing for your teammates, not yourself. It’s all about giving all you got before it ends. One day you could be lights out and a scoring machine. Then the next game you could get hurt, be out, have a bad shooting night, just anything. While you are given the opportunity to play the game of basketball, enjoy it and make every second count. The seniors have shown this and compared to their freshmen year, they have grown physically and become smarter players but it’s coming close to the end. The players realize to win you have to put in the time and effort every day, on and off the court, and that’s what the Lisbon Boys Basketball team is looking to do.
