College basketball is finally here! I pretty excited about this basketball for several reasons but probably the most because of the games I will hopefully get to see. I've got a couple of different trips planned to see some different teams and new arenas. Plus there are always last minute adds, like the Baylor game yesterday.
Most of you know one of my goals is to visit 7 historic college basketball gyms and so far I've seen a game in 3 of the gyms. This past weekend I had the chance to drive up to Stillwater, OK and see my team, the Texas Longhorns, play Oklahoma State at Gallagher-Iba Arena. The outcome of the game wasn't what I was hoping for but the rest of the trip was pretty awesome! Here's a little bit about our trip:
To say the Kentucky Wildcats basketball team is a big deal would be an understatement.
8 National Championships. Big Blue Nation. #1 in the Nation. 24,000 fans in Rupp Arena.
My dad and I have been to games that included the Wildcats, in fact 3 of 4 Final Fours we've attended have included Kentucky, but never have we been able to experience Kentucky in Rupp Arena.
