Hello Basketball People, This Is Hannah Signing Into Entry #1 With My Diary Of A Baller

Monday - Today I got up and ate a hard broiled egg, got dressed, and left for school. Once in the car I have morning worship with my dad and my brothers. When I arrived at school I went to before care, the bell rings at 8:15 and I went to my classes. My first class is civics, next class is science, then break, followed by English, pre-algebra, lunch, Bible, Latin, and finally gym. After school was done, I went and got ready to go to the weight room. I did wall jumps, side jumps, toe raises with the heavy ball, tuck jumps, defensive slides with bands, and vertical jumps with bands. I did each of those for 1 minutes then I took a 30 second break. I was in the weight room from 3 to 4 then I go to the gym with my dad's high school boys team. I stretch for about two minutes then we start working out. In the workout I did v-cut rip through lay-up, v-cut jab-step, pull up 3, defensive slides, post move, 3 on 3, and then I finished out the practice with 10 and 1. After the workout I went home with my dad and brothers, ate dinner that mom cooked and then relaxed for the evening until it was time for bed.

Atlantic City, NJ - August 18 - This year the kids where in for a treat. Gthing decide to stay home in not take the show on the road, for the 5th Annual 24/7 Gthing All Star Classic Event. We figure why not do it  at home since we were hitting the milestone of the 5th year mark that Gthing launch the first All Star Classic game under the umbrella of Basketball Spotlight in Trenton, NJ. Since then Gthing has travel to different parts of New Jersey to have the 24/7 basketball event. The 5th Annual mark has recognize some of the great player's who actually participated in the very first All Star Classic Game which was held at Trenton Catholic, names such as Honesty Scott-Grayson / Baylor University, Danielle Robinson / Seton Hall University, Imani Lewis / Wisconsin, Mya Grimes / High Point, etc. They all went on to have good high school career's, all scored 1,000 points and I'm sure along with tons of rebounds and assist and steals. This year was a little different then the previous years, we would wind up doing two Rising 9th grade games and one Rising 8th grade game. The level of competition was so strong for the 2022 Class we actually didn't have a choice but to do two games. We started out with the Rising 8th graders first who brought some heat to the court, and then we followed with the older girls. There were kids from multiple states that played in this event, also on hand we had a special guest appearance by Baylor freshman Honesty Scott-Grayson to present the Most Exciting Player Award of the game in which the award is named after her.

Gia Cooke - 5'7 - Elizabeth Seton HS MD - Fairfax Stars - Clinton, MD - Ms excitement put on a show even though her team came up short in overtime, but she walk away with the (Most Exciting Award Trophy).
