: : : Windward loses in final/OT and Charisma Osborne only scores 1 point for the game? Article in CalHi Sports suggest that she made a lot of mistakes and was the reason for the loss. Thoughts? Only 1 point??
: : : Yep, great players have a bad game sometimes. But it also shows that the rest of the team is pretty good when the best player only scores a point, but controls the championship game until the final seconds in a loss. Teams like Windward tend to use tournaments like Nike TOC to build confidence for the younger players, and then play their best in February and March.
: Only a point? Thatís hard to believe. I agree that you can get experience for younger players in these types of environments but you can get that in any game for young players. This was The Championship game in The Top Bracket of the Best all around Tournament in The Country. If you are The Best player whom is known for scoring points...you HAVE to do it on the biggest stage point blank. You get hyped up for the win well guess what you should take the blame when you donít show up either.
: You can bet no one feels worse than Osbourne, and she accepts the responsibility for not playing well. But that young lady has had so many big time performances in championship games that a bad performance was going to happen. It's the law of averages. These teenagers are not professionals. It's also a good bet that it won't happen again this year. So I guarantee Windward would rather it happen now in an out of state tournament, than when it really counts in the CIF or State playoffs.
