Oh, the intensity that I feel

The sweat dripping down my face

I concentrate on the steal

No, it does not include a base


With a basket on both sides

A mascot in the middle

The crowd chants Eagle pride

Our team strides for the medal


We dribble the ball up and down the court

It’s orange like the fire inside us

Watching or playing, it’s my favorite sport

Black and white clad refs run beside us


Red, white, and blue are our colors

Our play book has many layers

Each girl on my team are ballers

We are the basketball players
