Sweet 16 here we come!
Today was so great!!! The BYU mens basketball team played against Gonzaga in the second round of the NCAA tournament. And to be honest, I was a little scared because last year BYU lost in the second round of the NCAA tournament last year! But they did so great! Jimmer did amazing (as always) but the rest of the team did very well also! Emery was stealing the ball like no other! And Noah was making three's like they were nothing! Abouo was doing great with his shots. But I was mostly inpressed with Kyle! Ever since we lost Brandon, no one had really been able to take his place and make the shots that he did. But during this game, Kyle was doing what Brandon did! He was getting up to the net and doing lay-up's, and he was rebounding the ball! The score was 89-67 BYU. It was a great game! And since these NCAA games have been broadcasted all over the nation, the country is finally getting to see what BYU is really made of and that they have made a name for themselves and that Jimmer isn't just carrying them on his back. This is a HUGE deal, because BYU hasn't gone to the sweet 16 for 30 years! The last time we went was with Danny Ainge past the sweet 16 to the Elite eight. Once again, it was a great game, and I look forward to meeting our next challenge in New Orleans, at the sweet 16, playing against the Florida Gator's. It's going to be sweet! (no pun intended :) )
