Memories of the Blue and 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."
