Storyline

Jimmy is trying to make the basketball team, but with spending all that time practicing, he is behind in school. He can only do one or the other. He convinces Spinner to give him one of his Ritalin pills to boost his energy, but it has bad consequences for both Jimmy and Spinner. Meanwhile, Liberty is sick of writing Ashley's speeches for her, so she wants to take over the morning announcements for one day. Ashley knows Liberty won't be able to do it, but sets her up anyway.
