On Wednesday, Nov. 28, the Special Olympics Basketball Team played D99 Hoops at home. The game started at 4:30 p.m. and took place in the field house.

Before the game starts, the players meet with their individual coaches to warm up, and the referees and team coaches from both teams discuss any issues any the players might encounter. For example, one player was only able to do inbound passes, so he inbounded for both teams during the game.

“I think the game went well. The team showed their improvement by working together and passing the ball around before each shot,” said Tess Ellithorpe, senior special olympics basketball coach.
