And so it is finally here. It is the final time we will see Ryne Smith, Lewis Jackson, and Robbie Hummel play at Mackey Arena. last year at this time we were anticipating a deep run in both the Big Ten and NCAA Tournaments. This year we still have a little bit of work left to do. I won't feel safe until this game is officially in the win column, as well as that opening Big Ten Tournament game, so we avoid a "bad loss".
As we watch this game, I will be watching via laptop at the University of Miami baseball game against Florida Atlantic. rest assured, my heart is back in Indiana. Senior Night is always a bittersweet night, and since I have started blogging it has become even more bittersweet because I follow this team so closely. I am thankful that these guys became Boilermakers, and I hope they have a lot of basketball yet to play.
