Played the last regular season game earlier today. Lily had 12 points and 31 (out of 48 total) rebounds in a 26-28 loss in OT.Just played game 6 tonight. Lily had 10 points, 17 rebounds, 8 steals, 2 blocks, and 1 turnover.
The rest of the team collectively had 0 points, 14 rebounds, and 26 turnovers in a 10-35 loss. They are 2-4; don't know how they've won two. Lily is having fun even though the team is a special kind of terrible.
The culprit in this game, per usual, was the point guard. In her mind (and with her Dad's very vocal reinforcement), she is the greatest player ever to lay hands on a basketball, and, if only she were allowed to play one-on-five, the team would be undefeated instead of 2-5. Her stat line: 0 points (0-24 FG) and 12 turnovers (including several that lead to gift layups for the opposition). To miss 24 shots in a 30-minute game is perversely impressive.
And still, if Lily hadn't been out of the game with a gusher of a bloody nose for a good portion of the second half, the team might have won.
