This year Tulsans got lucky in having the opportunity to attend rounds 2 & 3 of games for the NCAA tournament. The BOK Center downtown was chosen as a host this year, exciting! Even though no Oklahoma teams participated, Eric's alma mater, Arizona, was chosen & got to play in Tulsa! We got lucky at the last minute that he didn't have to travel, and also got tickets to round 2 on Friday from my dad. University of Arizona vs. Memphis! We were also able to attend a pre-game brunch at the Doubletree Hotel for AZ fans, the band & cheerleaders put on a little pep rally :)
It was a super close game with a lot more fans from Memphis than from AZ, but that's ok! Arizona pulled off the win, barely!
For round 3, they played Sunday evening against Texas. Again, a CRAZY game...back & forth the whole time within just a few points. At the end they were down by one point, and then scored & won by ONE! It was the longest last 12 seconds of a game ever!
We (especially Eric) were so excited we were able to go, not many chances his school will be playing in OK!
Now they are in the Sweet 16 & play Duke on Thursday night. Go Wildcats, Bear Down!
