Players – by Joyce Sweeney
What would you do if you were captain of a high school basketball team and someone on the team was trying to destroy it? That's what high scoring Corey Brennan fears is happening to the Badgers..
Corey, Antawn, Theo, and Luke made the varsity in their junior year, and the Badgers' had amazed everyone. Now, in their senior year, they are picked to go all-city. All they had to do was replace one player.
Hot-shot transfer student Noah Travers wanted the job. He could shoot and rebound. He seemed the perfect replacement to play second string center. Only Noah didn't want to be second string.
From the moment Noah began practicing with the team, the team's chemistry starts to crumble. One player mysteriously quits and another collapses right before the first game. This is more than just rivalry between players, something sinister is happening.
Corey, Antawn, Theo, and Luke were great players, but to make all-city they have to be a great team. It is up to Corey to pull the team together. But if his suspicions are right, the team is in its greatest danger from one of their own members.
