The Jr. Chang’an Cup
The 2nd Annual Xi’an International Elementary Basketball Invitational
We arrived at our school, XLIS, while the game between Xi’an Hanova International School and XIS Gold just started. I was surprised when watching the second game that XIS Gray beat Xi’an Gaoxin No.6 Primary School. As a result, we met XIS Gray in the semi-finals. I was ready! Everything was totally perfect before the game for me. We beat XIS by a big margin and knew that the team coming up next was Kangchiao.
As the first shot made a swish sound in the net, our team is in a very bad situation. My heart jumped quickly, and it almost jumped out of my throat. I shivered, too. When the second shot bounced on the back of the rim, I refused to look. The whole stadium was in a silence. As I blinked my eye back again the ball bounced back surprisingly, right towards the position that I could get it easily. I jumped high, reached for it, and I got it and held it tight. As the buzzer sounded the only thought in my mind was, “We believe, we win!”
