This has always been one of my very favorite times of year! And it's even better when you get to view the action live. Luckily for us, Salt Lake City was one of the hosts for the second and third rounds of the NCAA tournament this year, and we got to clock some quality family bonding time at Energy Solutions Arena last weekend. There's nothing quite like some good college basketball. We had so much fun!!!
Anyway, back to the games. Matt and I had gifted tickets for one session (two games) to my parents, Heidi and Matthew for Christmas, and most of the Davis men bought tickets for all three sessions, so it was a family affair. Matthew and Heidi came to the Thursday afternoon games with us and watched #9 Wichita State beat #8 Pitt and #1 Gonzaga hold off #16 Southern. Matt and Matthew stuck around for the second session to see #6 Arizona handle #11 Belmont and #14 Harvard shock #3 New Mexico. On Saturday, my mom and dad came with us and saw Harvard fall to Arizona, and Gonzaga take on Wichita State. That last game was our favorite of the weekend! It was close throughout the entire game, and it was so fun to watch the teams exchange three's and make huge plays down the stretch. The game was tied with just two minutes left! I especially enjoyed watching Wichita State's expert coaching, which I am convinced is what led to the Shockers' ultimate victory. Poor Zags. And my poor, poor bracket.
