When UNC lost their game last weekend my Division I brackets blew up since I always put them down as the winners. But you see I didn’t care because my University had become the Division II Champions. That has kept me going until today when I realized I at least needed to finish off my updates on Men’s College Basketball. So as I say goodbye to my bracket, I still have a year of celebration as Western’s win is brought up at all my social gatherings this year, except maybe that wedding I am attending on April 21st. I know the bride doesn’t really give a fig about sports.
What a nail biter of a game! Western was ahead, then behind, then tied and finally ahead again. In the end WWU has at least earned a Division II Basketball Championship. Congrats to the Team and Coach Jackson and according to the announcers the rather unique “Democratic Locker Room Coaching’ technique.
I just finished watching the most thrilling game. I was literally biting my nails for the last five minutes. Western Washington University managed to maintain at least a four point lead for the entire game coming out to win 71 to Stonehill’s 66. This will be Western’s first time playing in the Championship final game. I am so proud to be a Viking now, not that I was ever not proud. Western has a legacy of excellence in athletics and academics. Heck right now I don’t even care what is happening in Division 1. I know that very few of my friends here in NC care about the fact that a little school from the NW is going to the Final Game for the National Playoffs in Division II, but that is okay. Not everyone can love the little guys.
