Long ShotBook - 2001
The new coach expects near perfection and does not deal well with anything less. Nick and Kia begin to wonder if they even want to make the team. Nick, Kia and their teammates are on the road at an elite hoop tournament. Feeling outmatched by teams from all over the world, they still look forward to having a good time. But for their coach, nothing but winning will be good enough. In Book #5 of the popular basketball series, Nick, Kia, and their Mississauga Magic teammates are on the road, heading to an elite hoop tournament in the Mid-West. Feeling outmatched by higher profile teams, the kids still look forward to a good time. However, Coach Barkley, who played college ball in the area and is still regarded as a hero, has other ideas.
