The main characters are Ben, Sam, Lily, and Chase. There are also other characters, but not as important, such as Ben’s parents, the Ram’s basketball team and coach.
They are all in middle school, and they just came off of a very exciting football season where they won the championship. Now it’s time for basketball. Ben is thinking that he is the best point guard in the league, but there is a kid, Chase who is even better than ben. They played each other first, and Chase’s team won. Ben was frustrated with himself, so he went outside and played basketball with Sam, his friend on his team. While playing Sam got injured, a high ankle sprain, and can’t play for the rest of the season.
