English - Descriptive Writing

I have to get a rough draft of my descriptive writing assesement done by tomorrow.

Approximately one page long, what can i write about ?
I can describe a place, event, object etc.
I do have a passion for basketball so i might write about that.


Do you have any suggestions, ideas, pointers, advice or comments?

Thank You !

    By the way... basketball is "king" <G>
    Suggestion - good descriptive writing appeals to the senses.... Describe the crowd at a basketball game... the feeling, sound, smell, motion.
