Good morning from Branson. Just got back from watching most of the Morningside game. The Mustangs hung on for a 2-point win, so the GPAC is now 2-1 at the tourney. Kind of a weird, sloppy game with lots of turnovers and not a lot of flow. Also, another game with strange officiating.
The team is watching film on Grand View right now, with lunch to follow and a shoot-around at 2 p.m. I'm heading to Branson's only sports bar to catch my alma mater, the University of Minnesota, in the first round of the Big Ten tournament before meeting back up with everyone before practice.
At the tournament, each team gets to warm up during halftime of the previous game, so we saw Black Hills State and Cal-State East Bay warming up, and we came away with one impression. One of CS-EB's players looks EXACTLY like Kobe Bryant. I'm not sure what that means, but if he plays like Kobe, the Hills could be another upset victim.
