I went to the OU basketball game with my kids last night and I would highly recommend the experience for anyone who's close enough to go. The Grizzlies won 76-68 over Southern Utah in OT on Senior Night. The quality of the ball is excellent and the facility (the O'rena) is top-notch and small enough that you are very close to the action (so close in fact that it was quite easy to make out every word of coach Kampe's frequent meltdowns). Parking is free and a 4 minute walk away, tickets are inexpensive as are food, drink and merchandise. The band, cheerleaders, dance team, student section, etc. are all excellent - very much like a B1G experience but on a smaller scale. Plus it's all very accesible for anyone living in the suburban Detroit area.
The two seniors honored last night were Reggie Hamilton who is second in the nation (!) in scoring and Lucas Laval-Perry (YTLLP). There was a nice pre-game ceremony and they capped it off with an exciting win. I'm now definitely a Grizz fan - except when they play Michigan.
