CENTER COURT STING Trash talking leads to trouble on the basketball court.... Forward Daren McCall is quick with an insult, quick to take offense, and quick to blame anyone but himself for his troubles. So when center Lou Bettman accuses him first of bad-mouthing him, then of vandalism, Daren turns the tables and insists that Lou is out to get him. The team splits into two camps, those who believe in Daren's innocence and those who take Lou's side. The fight heats up when Daren falls victim to an outrageous act. But did Lou retaliate, as Daren suspects, or is someone else trying to teach Daren a lesson?

Daren McCall is a middle school basketball player for the Rangers who loses his temper on the basketball court. Daren's temper causes technical fouls which upsets his team. Daren and his teammate, Lou Bettman, argue and fight. As the season goes on the whole team starts to break apart. Read this book to find out what happens.I found this book fun to read. Great book for 5th and 6th graders.
I think that they have ups and downs and if they do that one more time the team is going to braek up and it will be a mess.
