Cowboy Basketball is HERE!

We went to the Women and Men games last night at Gallagher-Iba Arena. It was a nice change to be able to watch a game with Brad :). I'm sure he was wishing he was out there playing but the cards haven't been dealt that way so that's how it is. Hey, a FREE Education is more than we can ask for.

The girls were fun to watch. They have some really good players and it just made me realize how out of shape I am. Oh how I wish I could still run a suicide in 30 something seconds. haha Keep DREAMING

The boys looked decent. They had some really GREAT moments but some SICK moment’s too :) typical exhibition game.

The new players that I love so far:

31 Pilgrim - I wish we would have had him last year!!! I can't remember any of our big men ever pulling double doubles! He has a good head, unlike moses. We need that! Someone who goes out there and worries about himself and plays ball, all Marshall is worried about is who is touching him and getting their arms off him

14 Penn - Nice to have a switch up from Byron, he pulled some nice moves and it will be fun to watch him play the awesome big 12 point guards. It will also be nice to see Keaton play a true 2 guard instead of being the back-up point guard.

21 Gully - HE IS a MINY TERRELL!!!! He is only a freshman but I think he has tons of potential. He was really scrappy and I like that.

Those are the guys who stuck out to me but I think our freshman have tons of potential – as well as the team as a whole. This year might be a little shaky because of lack of experience but I have high hopes.

Obi made a pass last night that brightened my day! Hahahahahaha! He chucked it down the floor WAY TOO FAR and it bounced out of bounds. It was a classic OBI pass that I haven't seen for awhile so it was nice.

We got a kick out of Coach Ford. There was one timeout when he was SCREAMING AT BRIGGS (the do-it-all manager kid), “BOARD, BOARD, WHERE IS MY BOARD!!!!” Brad was yelling – Binky, Binky, Give me my Binky!!! Ford can't get anything for himself - pretty hilarious. But, he does a good job having Briggs and Joey being his "go-to guys".

I love this time of year. Only two more home football games to focus on and then it's all BASKETBALL!!!! :)

I hope we will be up in Idaho for the 2nd or 3rd. I don't know with my parents just having come back. You should stop by Provo on your way back up to Idaho from St. George if you can though. I know that we would ALL love to see you.
It has been WAY too long!
Love you Whit!
