Will here, but right now I am not in Chicago at Saint Xavier; I am in Branson, Missouri getting ready to make the call for our school’s men’s basketball team in the first round of the NAIA National Championship tournament. The game is tonight at 9:45 p.m. This is by far the latest game I have ever called, so it should be an interesting one. I left with the team back on Monday at 8 am and was able to work it out with my teachers so that I ended up getting an extra week of spring break!
So far this trip has been pretty fun! We had a long bus ride into Missouri,
but luckily we were on a pretty awesome coach bus, so it was almost like an airplane on wheels. To get the team pumped up we watched a great selection of movies; The Avengers, Skyfall, Friday Night Lights, and The A-Team.
So far the team has practiced, and we have gone out to eat, but unfortunately they have not played a game yet. The first few games of the tournament have started and there have been a lot of upsets! Hopefully our school will not be one of those upsets as they find themselves a 2 seed in there bracket!
Tune in to some of the action on WXAV 88.3 fm or wxav.com tonight at 9:45 pm as we will get the tournament underway!
