NBA weekend: Newbie Basketball Altercation

A regular,no nonsense Sunday workout in the hoops court. The burning heat of the sun is a perfect energizer. The regimen is composed of matches in H-O-R-S-E, biente uno (21) and a one-on-one race to 12 game. The winner earns some bragging rights while the loser carries the basketball on the way back home.

Here are the competitors:

Austin a.k.a. "The Wonder Gnome"
Specialty: lightning fast dribbling. Devastating long-range jumpshots.

Alison aka "this blog's owner"
Strengths: likes shooting (and missing) lots of three pointers, banging bodies under the basket then pulling up an unexpected jump hook.

The match:
Closed match, Austin won by a point but garnered multiple hits and blows in the body and head.
