The final score goes by pretty quick. I let the demo after the game was over play for awhile but it never showed the score again.
I lost big by 29 points

If anyone had any tips, I'd love to hear them. Much like roadrunner, I got my butt handed to me.

56-64 => -8

 

My defense is terrible. It's like the players are just running around randomly. Also, what's up with not being able to pass to a player that is off the screen?

When you're on defense, press B to switch players, and hammer A to steal the ball.

20 for me 61-41 with the 'Los Angels' - would have been more but the CPU stole and got a 3-pointer in the last minute :(

@Jibbajaba - totally agree, interceptions are key to getting anywhere :)

 

PS. Can I play too please? :D

is the contest still going? I definitely have some tips I didn't see that until now...

 

switch players with B, & I also hold the direction toward the player I want, don't know if this makes a difference.

 

get ahead of the opponent players by switching to a player in front of them. then it is fairly easy to steal the ball by pressing A when you get close & it gets easier with practice. Staying in front of them will cause them to dodge around & not shoot as much too.

 

when I was like 12 or so & used to immediately steal back the ball almost every time I made a goal, & I had a way of nailing 3-pointers almost every time. I probably won by 100pts back then!

 

hope I wasn't too late to give tips! and I hope they can help

 

(oops I got A & B mixed up, hope that's right)

This doesn't end until Monday, so your tips are definitely still helpful, BAZ. Nice score, KLT.
