Expert coach tunes up the housemates

November 28, 2007 1:42 PM

07-1128basketball1.jpgOur celebrity housemates only have a few days left to practice for the Wheelchair Basketball weekly task. To help the housemates in getting ready for the big ball game, Big Brother brought in Coach Noel to teach the basics and guidelines of wheelchair basketball. The expert trainer then shocked the housemates with the news that by the end of this week, they will have to face the national wheelchair basketball team in a 3-on-3 game.

07-1128coachnoel.jpgAccording to Coach Noel, the same rules of regular basketball also apply in the wheelchair basketball. However, some of the time guidelines were modified to give the players more time in pushing the wheelchairs. Coach Noel emphasized to the housemates that they can only push their chairs twice, and after that, they have to dribble the ball on their sides. Should they push thrice, they will be charged with a traveling violation. It is also important for our housemates to make sure that no part of the lower-half of their body will touch the floor. The final game will be held in the activity area and given the limited space, the housemates will only play in a 3-on-3 halfcourt game. The housemates, however, became concerned of the injuries that they might sustain while playing 07-1128basketball2.jpgthe game. Coach Noel then reminded everyone to be careful in pushing the chairs as their fingers might get caught in the wheels.

All the players then immediately got on the wheelchairs to get the hang of the real game. But after some time of shooting the ball on the ring, most of them began feeling the strain on their upper bodies as their waist and legs remained stationary all throughout the game. Will our celebrity housemates adjust to the game in time to win over their rival national team? Meanwhile, be sure to catch Uber this afternoon at 5:30pm to see who Kuya's newest celebrity housemate will be.
