The title, “Running the System: From the 661 to the 310” refers to former LMU Basketball Coach Paul Westhead’s run ‘n gun style of play, and the area codes of Palmdale and West Los Angeles. In her narrative, Alexis Hall finesses the connection between her preeminent past and promising present. The narrative tips off with Hall illustrating her upbringing and the lessons learned that come to symbolize her being. She then slams and jams through moments of time in her life that proved to be game changers. However, once the arena is empty and the fans are all gone, Hall stands alone in center court wondering if she gave it her all.
