Pick and roll youth basketball
Pick and Roll by Kelsey BlairJazz Smith-Mohapatra is the toughest and best player on her basketball team -- and this year shes determined to lead the team to a championship win. But in the last game of the regular season, Jazz sets an offensive move called a pick and roll. A player on the other team doesnt see it coming; she crashes into Jazz, and then onto the floor.

But even worse than the possibility of being suspended for the playoffs, Jazzs teammates are suddenly questioning her physical style of play and whether the team can make it all the way to the pennant without her.
