Man, seriously, what a motherf*cking week!!!!!!!! I went into this trip just hoping we didn't choke away the Wednesday night game and holy hell did it exceed expectations. Got in Wed AM and watched every game of all 4 days of the tournament, showed up to a few late but got a piece of every game. Crowd was definitely incredibly thin...would say first day most fans were UCLA, Colorado, and Zona. Because of this, upper level tickets I bought were closed off, and I was upgraded to VIP...so moved down to the 200 sections...pretty cool. I was able to sneak down into the 100 sections for all 4 Buffs games and sit mid court row 1-2... so god damn cool, I watched the champ game when I got home today and you can literally see me the whole time, i was getting texts frmo everyone telling me to calm down and stop acting so crazy hahahaha. Got on Sportscenter for a couple clips to, really surreal experience. Won't bore you with my thoughts on other games... Buffs just straight up came to play this tournament, locked up defensively and Nate Tomlinson just choked out Devoe Joseph, Cobbs, and Kyle Fogg, absolutely unbelievable job defensively by the kid. So proud of Carlon Brown for stepping up this tournament, two Top 10 nominee dunks, aggressive offensively, and was fluid with his shots and stayed within himself and the offense. Dre was Dre, a muthaf*ckin beast!!!! This team has played so far above expectations, so far above their means, so far above their maturity (just a young group together I mean)...such an unbelievable story. Tad Boyle just gets it done, I have my qualms with his rotations, but he seemed to be able to keep guys fresh, and that's obviously incredibly important in a 4 day run. Some of you heard I got to do a halftime shootout contest with some kid from Zona...gotta admit, I was pretty damn nervous. not a packed house, but still pretty solid for the champ game and more people than I've played in front of, and I'm not nearly what i used to be haha... plus you're shooting on Staples in jeans and no warmup... was definitely some jitters. Kid was awful and I only needed to make 2 to win the whole thing, which I luckily was able to do on the first two jumpers, both cashed even though both felt pretty awful. I celebrated but for some reasno they had me keep going and then stopped me after my 3rd make for some reason, dunno what happened there. Shout out to all the Buffs fans who saw me in the arena after and around the town and gave me love for "setting the tone for the Buffs to win"... but I cant take credit for that, just was trying not to embarrass myself too badly. Got a trip for two to Vegas, a droid tablet, a phone, and a $125 gift card... not a bad gift, but nothing in comparison to that pac12 championship and a spot in the Big Dance. Easily the happiest sports moment of my life and I'll never forget this experience. Wish more Buffs were there to celebrate with me and check out CUnit just crush Staples with their energy, that performance by those 50 kids was absolutely amazing, so so so so so proud of them. I know the players fed off that energy. Got to meet Andre's family and a few other families as well, but god damn, Dre's family has to be the nicest group of people I've ever met, an absolute pleasure to spend the week cheering by their side. Took a lot of pictures and will try to get some of them up on facebook and on the site here... if you guys have any specific questions let me know and I'll answer them about the games, the experience, whatever you want, could talk about it for days but didn't wanna go on and ramble in my post. go buffs, I still can't really believe it.
