And it's pretty easy to hit passing shots like this.. look at the passing shot in the first game at 15-30 for example. She could barely reach the ball there and just tried to get it into the court. Normally she wouldn't have made it but now it counts as an amazing passing shot?
Apparently the fact that Connors easily won was lost on you.
