BYU! BYU! BYU! Double overtime in the Ford Center in Oklahoma City. The last time the University of Florida had played in the tourney they won the NCAA championship. 3rd row seats behind the bench. Amazing. So happy for Noah, Jimmer, Michael "Jordan" Lloyd, and the rest of the team. Loudest I have yelled probably ever. Jo's poster and mom's t-shirts got us on tv all throughout the game. Totally worth changing my flight to leave a day early, and waking up around 3am to travel from DC to OKC and get to my seat just as the player starters were announced.
We were able to return for the 2nd round session at the Ford Center, even after Friday's 70 degree weather turned into near blizzard conditions on Saturday in Oklahoma. Before the BYU-Kansas State game tipped off, we witnessed the biggest upset of the tournament so far, with Northern Iowa knocking off the big boys of Kansas. Although BYU lost, they fought hard.
