tonight, the blazers played the defending national champs (north carolina tarheels) in the NIT Quarterfinals. tip off started at 8:00pm at the bartow and saying we were excited was an understatement. as usual, we met up with my side of the family since lola and pawpaw bought our tickets so that we could all sit together. all the kids sat through the whole game thanks with the help of lollipops from lola. the game was neck and neck during each quarter. they'd be up by 3...we'd be up by 3. rinse and repeat. jay and i cheered like we were students again. high-fiving here, being super obnoxious there...all while holding our kids and jumping. good times, although we couldn't seem to score a basket in the paint or a freaking free throw. we could have won, dude. but alas, the blazers fell to NCU 60-55. elijah millsap led the team with 18 points and 7 rebounds. oh, and mike davis sucks. hehe. lastly, as jay says, "i'm just glad the mecca of basketball came to the bartow and we were there to witness it." GOOO BLAZERS!!!
