Today my alma mater is playing in their first NCAA tournament game since 1994 against the #1 seed Indiana. We may be a 16 seed team, and chances are very likely that we will lose, but that doesn't take away from the fact that this is SO. EXCITING! I discovered the fun of filling out a bracket a few years ago (why did I wait so long?!), and now that I have a team in the big dance, I was giddy with excitement filling out my bracket earlier this week.
JMU won our conference (CAA) which bought us a ticket to the tournament, but the Duke Dogs still had to win a play in game to get to the tournament. We beat LIU Brooklyn on Wednesday evening, 68-55. Look at my little M as she cheered them on....already a Duke Dog!
I am so proud of University!
