The Game-Winning Shot


Down by two

Feeling Blue


Got the ball

Standing tall


Fans screaming

Eyes gleaming


Quick glance

Final chance


Sweat dripping

Time slipping


Dribbles right

Guarded tight


Quick reverse

Crisp and terse


Gets it back

Must attack


Looks and drives

Help arrives


Double team

Finds a seam


Running past

Moving fast


Coach is yelling

Words compelling


Steps back

Defenders lack


Behind the arc

Feels a spark


Shoulders squared

Feel prepared


Locked and loaded

Time devoted


Knees bent

Hours spent


Fades away

Here's the trey


In the air

Not a prayer


Nears the rim

Chances slim


Time expires

Heart's on fire


Nothing but net

I'll never forget
