  How many synonyms for the word "rebound" can you find?
  • if you found 9 - 10 words - you score 3 points. Way to score!!
  • if you found 7 - 8 words - you score 2 points. Great shot!
  • if you found  4 - 6 words.. you're on the right court. Try 1 free throw. 
  • if you found 0 - 3 words... you've fouled out. Try again next game!
