It was the day before the big game. The championship game for the Chino High Pelicans as they go on to face the Mater Dei Huskies in the Staples Dome in Los Anjos. Both teams fought extremely hard to get to this point, both having one loss going into the final game of the season with a loss from each team respectively by an average margin of 2 points.   

It was the game the whole city of Los Anjos was waiting for especially because the prodigy David Emami was suiting up possibly playing the biggest game of his life. For David Emami, this game was unlike any other because the outcome win or loss will be drastically changing his life forever. If David wins this game for his beloved Pelicans, he would be forever loved by the city of Los Anjos and be crowned the Prince of Basketball and get a chance to play for the Los Anjos   

Raccoons on the IBA or the International Basketball Association. On the other hand, if he loses, his basketball future will be over, and he will have to rely on something to give his life some substance for the future. David is determined to do whatever it takes to do on the court come championship time, but the one man who stands in his way is Otto Ball. His counterpart is on the Mater Dei Huskies. Both of whom were skilled basketball players both projected to get to the IBA assuming they win the championship for their respective schools.   

David got to the gym early, working on his shot at 4 am. This was David’s usual routine as he always wanted to be the first in the gym and the last to leave no matter what. Then, practice time came, and the Chino High Pelicans hit the floor grinding it out before the game of their lives, the game that would bring honor to their schools and themselves. One game away from basketball immortality. Coach Mo was very straightforward about his pep talk with the boys before the final game. Play hard, work hard, listen to your coaches and you will reach the promised land. Those were the final words of Coach Mo during his last practice before the game.  

Gameday. It was finally time to start the game, the ball was about to be thrown, and the crowd was going crazy. One last team huddle before the jump, Coach Mo said, “One last time gentlemen, make your family proud and make your school pride.” First quarter starts, and Otto Ball is showing David out. Shooting threes like no one’s business and this continued all through the third quarter, but still, the Chino High Pelicans kept it close. By the last 2 minutes, Mater Dei was only up by 5 points.  

A minute and thirty passes and Mater Dei lead by three with the ball in their hand but a key defensive stop by David Emami gets Chino High the ball with 10 seconds left. With no timeouts remaining, Chino High inbounds the ball to their key player, none other than David Hume. David sprints to the three-point line shake Otto with a crossover and steps back for the three. Good!!! David Emami shoots the three at the buzzer and fulfills his dream of making it to the IBA.
