Basketball was a sport that i had done nothing but played in gym on the days it was too rainy to play on the outdoor fields. Coming to America i knew that basketball was big in most states, and whilst not as big in Maine the basketball team still gets a good turn out to their games. We left it  a little late in the semester to finally go to a game but since the team were playing in the Alfond Arena rather than The Pit it seemed like a good game to use as a tester to see if we enjoyed it.

Despite losing in the last few seconds, the game was pretty intense. It was close throughout the whole game, making watching much more fun when, for the most part, i didn’t have any clue what was going on. It was definitely a sport i enjoyed viewing though, and hopefully i’ll get the chance to go to many more games next semester.
