Memories of the Blue & Gold Tournament
"I find myself going back just to enjoy good basketball. Must be in my DNA.
Like my dad, I'm as interested in the players as I am in the game. Who are
the leaders? How does a team handle a loss? Then in the coming years,
I enjoy seeing which colleges the stars choose and how they do at
"the next level." Of course I will attend the Greenwood game, my former
classmate's grandson is a Blue Jay."
