Congrats to Brooks Monaghan and the Lady Tiger Soccer team on their second straight Conference USA Championship! This year I had the honor of doing the play-by-play for a majority of their home games, so it's the first time I've called games for a conference champion at the collegiate level in 12 years.
The debut of the women's basketball team didn't turn out like we had hoped, but it was just an exhibition game and if you saw it, you could tell they've come a long way in a short time. And, most notably, how about that crowd. An estimated 2,300 were in attendance on Friday thanks to our marketing department. We probably had 2,000 elementary students at the Field House. We tip it up for real this Friday when we host Northern Arizona to start the regular season.
