DPF / Updike

Another for the Final Four, from Poetryfoundation.org. The rest of the poem may be found here:

from Ex-Basketball Player / by John Updike (1932–2009)

Once Flick played for the high-school team, the Wizards.
He was good: in fact, the best. In ’46
He bucketed three hundred ninety points,
A county record still. The ball loved Flick.
