It was about the life of an African American teenager named Lonnie. He grew up in Harlem, New York in a fairly poor family. However, this didn't stop him as he was granted a scholarship to play basketball at Montclare University. They were known for having a very good basketball team so this was an excellent opportunity for Lonnie to advance his basketball career. He was an excellent ball player since day one, but he always had a problem with gambli Overall, I thought this was an excellent book.
He was an excellent ball player since day one, but he always had a problem with gambling and fixing basketball games which rolled over into his collegiate career. Luckily, he was not found guilty through a school investigation and was able to resume playing after just a two week suspension.
I would highly recommend this novel for high school students who are interested in sports. Lonnie's story truly is entertaining and had me always wanting to read more. I think if he keeps up his very hard work and determination, the sky is his limit and he will pursue his NBA aspirations.

If you are not into sports, I would not recommend this book as it includes a wide variety of basketball terms that only a sports-minded person would know. Jun 01, Trevor H rated it it was ok. His dream is to be a basketball player; to be a star in college and eventually make his way to the pros. Living in Harlem is tough, living around rough conditions, but Lonnie finds away to keep himself out of trouble by dedicating all of his time on the basketball court. After his senior year in high school, he has offered a scholarship from a small Midwestern college Montclair State.
Although Lonnie is a smart kid he is still going to be pressured with tough college classes and high level of play college basketball, but he finds a way to manage that all. Unfortunately Lonnie makes one slip up in the temptation of fixing games for local gamblers; he finds a way back into focusing on school sports and only that.
This is a great book and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in basketball and playing it at the next level in college. May 15, Sebastian rated it it was amazing.

The Outside Shot
I chose this book because it is about basketball and about an athlete and his struggles in college his freshm The name of the book is called The Outside Shot and the author is Walter Dean Myers. I chose this book because it is about basketball and about an athlete and his struggles in college his freshmen year. A friend recommended this book to me. My favorite part was when Lonnie and the team got accused of point shaving.
After all of this transpired he went to his friend named Sherry and was there for a week feeling depressed and horrible for a week. The school eventually pleaded him non guilty. MY least favorite part was how he didn't know anything and people were treating him like jerks. Yes because I compare myself to Lonnie.
Yes i would recommend this book because it talks about how athletes go through difficult situations. Feb 27, Kenny Li rated it really liked it. Before reading this book however, I highly recommend reading Hoops first. Reading Hoops will show the reader how Lonnie evolves through the 2 books in many ways. That is a reason why many people read books and is definitely evident in Hoops and The Outside Shot.
Both books follow Lonnie Jackson. In The Outside Shot, he is a bit older and in college. He is adapting to the college life and meets many people like Fatman, a guy who bets on games and Sherry, a girl he likes. Things don't turn out good with everyone though, especially Fatman. Fatman bets on games to make money and Lonnie gives him a little help which eventually gets him in trouble.
As much as I did like this book, there were some bad things about it. It was a bit slow for my liking but gets a bit more suspenseful later on in the book. I highly recommend this book to anyone because it shows you the college life and also how much Lonnie grows up. Mar 08, King Jalen Steele rated it really liked it.

I like this book because it's about a black male making it out of the hood going to school and playing ball.
Even though it starts off slow it is still interesting. I recommend this book for kids ages 8 to I recommend it for that age group because our minds think like that. We want to go to school and play sports. So this is kind of inspirational for us to want to do well and one day go to college and play sports.

Sep 03, Sandra Strange rated it it was ok Shelves: In this sequel to Hoops, the protagonist goes to a prestigious Indiana college on basketball scholarship. The only questionable parts in the novel come with the protagon In this sequel to Hoops, the protagonist goes to a prestigious Indiana college on basketball scholarship.

The novel is positive, with positive choices and consequences and hope for the protagonist at the end.

May 01, Sherry Ou Yang rated it really liked it. Lonnie is now in college where his talent in basketball has brought him. However, when he reaches college, it isn't all that he expect.
There is more behind the simple game of basketball than he had originally planned it to be. Growing up in Harlem certainly couldn't have helped him much when he meets all these other great basketball players, all like him wanting to make it as a professional player. Overall, this book was really good, it talked a lot about Lonnie defying the odds against him and Lonnie is now in college where his talent in basketball has brought him. Overall, this book was really good, it talked a lot about Lonnie defying the odds against him and experimenting new things.
He learns not to give up.
The Outside Shot by Walter Dean Myers | tevopaleqopi.tk
Even though I didn't know much about basketball, in fact, I know nothing about basketball. The plot is very good though, it talks a lot about the struggles you will face in college, which is still a pretty long way for him. But, hey it is never too late to start thinking about it. Nov 14, Diego Sanchez rated it liked it Shelves: I could connect to the hopes Lonnie had, which were to make on the team and inspire to one day make to the big leagues.
The challenges he faces along the way, were a nice to touch because they built suspense in the story. Like an most good books this one had a happy ending in which Lonnie stays with Sherry the girl of dreams, he is allowed to play college basketball, and he finds good people to hang with. I would recommend this to people who are into sports especially those who enjoy basketball. May 27, Lucy marked it as to-read.

He doesn't like his new coaches very much. Going to class for him was way harder than he think it would be compared to work in high school. He meets a girl name Sherry and she caught Lonnie's eye. I like how this book was like a series to the book "Hoops". It talks about what happens to Lonnie after he won the game and got a scholarship from a colle I read the book "The Outside Shot", by Walter Dean Myers.
It talks about what happens to Lonnie after he won the game and got a scholarship from a college from "Hoops". It also talks about him getting paid to beat the game like how gamblers want it. It just like the problem his coach in high school got, "fixing" the game.
