Debaters Can't Jump: Volume One

I mentioned earlier that one of the reasons Pacific forensics rocks is because we actually do things together, like form 3 on 3 basketball teams and play in the intramural league over winter term. Tonight was the first game(s), and it was really fun. Our squad formed two different teams, and mine is made up of me, and two freshmen, Josh and Mark. The format is to 21 by 1’s and 2’s. We lost to the first team we played 21-16, 21-16, and to the second team (made up of several people who really could be playing for the school team) 21-7, 21-9. Josh and my three-point shooting really kept us in these games longer than we had any business being in them considering that we don’t have anyone taller than 5’7’’, get pretty much dominated in the post and have no reserves (most teams have at least four people). The other forensics team scored a combined 7 points in their two games, so we really were the high water mark, though a fun time was had by all! Several other members of the team came to watch and cheered us on, too, it was so nice! The games are on Mondays and Wednesdays for the next three weeks, so I’ll keep you all posted on our progress!


  • You guys did great! You will improve greatly as well. This was just the beginning!
