In a way, when we beat Gonzaga for the B4A Championship, I kind of had a feeling that it might be the highlight of the season when it was all said and done. And to be honest, with the sort of expectations going into the season, I didn’t mind it at all, as it was the medicine UM sports fans needed before that dreaded football game. Now that it’s actually the case, I don’t mind it either.
Another highlight was Simpson and Teske’s final game at Crisler. I go to almost all home games, and usually, I sit in or near the student section. For this game, I snuck to the very top of the arena around center court before the game started, where there was an empty row of desks, and just marveled peacefully above all the chaos; it was the last time I’d be seeing two of my favorite Michigan players of all time, and I wanted to enjoy it without any distractions around me.
