Seeing Chu Tian turning around and running away after perfectly scoring a three-pointer, number 27 Xiao Gang smiled.
Fucking hell, that slap to the face came completely unexpected!
He had only just declared that Chu Tian would not be able to score another basket only to have Chu Tian score a three-pointer on him. It would appear that he possesses actual skills!
Number 27 Xiao Gang realized that it was time to get serious.
The match continued. When the basketball landed on Xiao Gang’s hands again, he prepared to shoot for the basket. In fact, he had shot the ball out of his hand. But, the instant the basketball left his hand, a silhouette rose from the ground and blocked his path.
It was Chu Tian!
A fierce block. Chu Tian swatted away the basketball number 27 Xiao Gang shot out, smashing it behind him.
Seeing that, the spectators immediately burst into another uproar.
If there was anything even more exciting than a dunk, then it would most definitely be a block!
This was especially true for a block with such a difference in height. It was most definitely what everyone wanted to see the most.
Of course, to the person who had their shot blocked, it was not something pleasing in the slightest.
It would be one thing if the person that blocked their shot was similar height to them. But, with a difference of over a dozen centimeters, having one’s ball blocked by someone shorter than them was something extremely humiliating.
[1. Basically a height difference of half a foot or so.]
It was so much that Xiao Gang was left momentarily stunned.
That wasn’t all. The others on the court also grew rowdy.
“Oh my, Gang Bro, that’s quite something. That block, it’s simply a textbook example of getting thrashed.”
“Gang Bro, you seemed to have mentioned that there hasn’t been anyone in our Haicheng University of Medicine that was able to block your shots, no?”
“What’s going on here, Gang Bro? Do you need to eat a snickers?”
“Shoo, shoo, shoo,” Xiao Gang rolled his eyes in disdain, “Stop messing around and focus on the person you’re guarding.”
Perhaps because he was blocked, Chu Tian could sense that this number 27 Xiao Gang began to guard him even tighter for the rest of the match. Their skills and endurance were similar. As such, their competition soared to a higher level. Xiao Gang had attempted to block Chu Tian’s shots multiple times to return the favor.
But, Chu Tian was not zealous in fighting him. He would only take shots when he could. When he can’t, he would pass it to his teammates. After all, basketball was a team sport.
If one was to run back and forth around the court all by oneself, it would not be playing basketball. Instead, it’ll be putting on a monkey show.
But, it doesn’t change the fact that Chu Tian’s clothes were completely drenched.
Of course, Chu Tian was not the only person covered in sweat. Even though Xiao Gang was wearing a basketball jersey, he was also completely drenched.
Of the spectators, more than half of them were female students. Staring at the players running back and forth through the court, their eyes were filled with infatuation.
Smittened by the players, a female student said, “Oh god, these men are simply too fierce. They’re all tall and strong. Oh how great it would be if one of them could become my boyfriend.”
Bai Xiaochun and Yang Rong happened to stand beside that girl. They could help but take a glance at her after hearing her comment.
That girl was not very tall. She’s roughly 160cm and slightly chubby. Her appearance can not be considered to be ugly, but she definitely wouldn’t be able to be considered as a beauty either. One can only say that she looked average.
Yang Rong smiled and turned her head around to look at Bai Xiaochun, “A toad wanting to enjoy swan meat. She’s truly delusional.”
“Pff,” Bai Xiaochun immediately covered her mouth. She gently pulled Yang Rong’s hand and said to her, “Speak with a lower voice. She might hear it and beat you up for it.”
After several more bouts of back and forth, number 11 Zhao Lei was finally unable to tolerate the heat anymore. Taking a gap in the offense, he took off his jersey and tossed it behind the basketball rack.
It was simply too hot!
Seeing that, Chu Tian also removed his short sleeve t-shirt.
He was in even more heat!
While he was wearing short sleeves, it was still majorly different from wearing no sleeves. This was especially true in regards to the material difference. His short sleeve t-shirt was made from cotton. Once it’s drenched in sweat, it will cling onto his body. Especially his arms, the wet t-shirt will restrict his movements.
“Kyahh! Those muscles!”
“Mom! That’s too barbarous! Too sexy!”
“God! I can’t deal with it anymore, I can’t! No, I’m going to have a nosebleed! He’s simply too manly!”
As Chu Tian removed his short sleeves, a disturbance immediately sounded from the spectators. Some of the more brazen female students even began to whistle at him.
Even Bai Xiaochun’s eyes were wide open.
Chu Tian’s figure is simply too much! Those abs! Those back muscles! That waist! …
Seeing Chu Tian’s intention to throw his t-shirt behind the basketball rack, Yang Rong suddenly called out to him.
A single shout. That was all that was needed to make all the female students nearby look over to Yang Rong all at once.
Chu Tian turned his head around and discovered that Yang Rong and Bai Xiaochun were actually here.
Seeing Yang Rong waving at him with a beaming smile on her face, Chu Tian also smiled. He walked over to her and handed his t-shirt to her.
Seeing the testosterone-emitting sweat that covered Chu Tian’s body rolling down and falling off from his body, Bai Xiaochun, with an apple-red face, held her half-drank water bottle in her hand and hesitated whether to offer it to Chu Tian.
Suddenly, another school girl standing beside them, quite pretty too, handed out a bottle of water to Chu Tian before Bai Xiaochun could do anything.
Seeing the smile on that female student, Chu Tian’s mind began to make a comparison subconsciously.
Decent face. Pretty good looking. But, her figure and her aura falls quite short when compared to Bai Xiaochun. They were not of the same caliber.
It simply couldn’t be helped. Bai Xiaochun’s figure was simply too much. It would not be an exaggeration to say that her figure resembled someone from a fantasy world.
Of course, it was also because that girl was standing right next to Bai Xiaochun. Even if Chu Tian didn’t want to, it would be impossible for him to not compare the two of them.
Furthermore, as the three girls were standing together, Chu Tian thought that girl was together with Bai Xiaochun and Yang Rong. As such, he did not hesitate and reached out from that bottle of water.
Having sweat so much, he was indeed thirsty.
He opened the cap and gulped down a third of the bottle. Then, he returned it to that girl and smiled, “Thanks. Let’s have dinner together tonight.”
Hearing those words, the girl’s eyes creased to a crescent arc. She immediately started nodding her head. So excited, she shouted, “Mn, I’ll wait for you! Fight on!”
[2. The original phrase was ‘add oil!’ The phrase was actually added to the Oxford Dictionary in 2018. It’s an all encompassing cheer akin to the japanese ‘ganbatte.’]
Chu Tian smiled and nodded his head. Then, he returned to the basketball court.

Translator's thoughts: Feeling kinda crappy today. Might have another chapter, or maybe tomorrow. Didn't really have the concentration level. I need to translate some MGA too. Sigh
Hope you guys enjoy this story so far. I certainly do. This will be a side project until hopefully someone (wuxiaworld, qidian international or if feilu/faloo make their own site) picks it up and offer me a job. Or else, I'll just continue with it and eventually post advance chapters.
