Namine hasn’t been to basketball practice in a while, due in part to holiday craziness and in part to medical things like getting her teeth pulled. She was happy to return.

Most of practice today entailed scrimmages and drills, in which Namine is improving. If I had to guess, she favors playing defense over offense because it means she gets to block.

Even against bigger kids, Namine is a force to be reckoned with when she’s blocking. Her wheelchair by necessity is large and bulky, and her wheels have good grip. She uses its frame to great effect, positioning it against an opponent’s wheels, preventing movement and forcing them to either distance themselves from the basket or get rid of the ball.
