Ask almost any basketball player what his or her favorite aspect of the game is and the answer almost always will be offense.
Whether it's draining a long-range three-pointer, taking the ball to the hole on a fast-break or knocking down a medium-range jumper, most players are mostly about racking up offensive numbers. After all, as the adage goes: "Offense gets the glory."
But ask Brawley Union High girls basketball player Kaylin Rubin what she likes most about basketball and her answer is unlike most of the basketball-playing world. She's one of the few who actually enjoys defense more than offense.
"I love playing defense. I don't know what it is, but I just really love it. I really could care less about offense," said the 18-year-old senior. "With this team, we really don't have a good offense. Our game is more about defense. We're a more defensive team and that's how we beat people."
