Markus Howard Senior Day (Sacar Anim and Jayce Johnson too). Not a strong effort, but Seton Hall was pretty unstoppable. Too many skilled bigs for MU. I think the rule kicked in with like 16:35 left, it was over pretty early. Got Donny Marshall and Will Perdue's autographs as they were in town for TV and Radio respectively. Marshall said his rookie year cards had Donyell Marshall's facsimile signature of "Donny Marshall" on them, and Donyell's cards had Donny's facsimile of "Donyell Marshall" on those. Pretty cool anecdote. Perdue good enough to sign over the rail where they stashed the radio guys. Despite sellout was able to find decent lower seats for 2nd half.
Thurl Bailey sang the National Anthem. Got his autograph at halftime. Kyle Korver, Mike Budenholzer also on hand, Terrence Rencher was an assistant coach for Creighton. Game over by the rule (Creighton winning by 8) with 7:59 remaining. Markus Howard pretty effectively shut down. Lawrence Moten was present to congratulate Howard on setting the Big East scoring record (breaking Moten's total). Was a surprise that he got flown in for that. Bo Ellis also present, plus Stephen Bardo on the call for FS1. Got to Creighton seats for 2nd half but security quite tight and Rencher & Korver both exited with players, making for a tough if not impossible autograph.
Went w/ kids. Arrived late, considered going to Goolsby's instead depending on ticket prices (had been $20 face value if I went through ticket office earlier in week). There was one scalper out when we arrived. He said $40 for a pair and I said I only had $20, we walked toward Goolsby's for about 20 feet before he said "I'll take it. Because you have kids." I think it may have had something to do with the complete lack of a market at that point. Good seats though, back row of lower deck, MU won by the rule with 11:59 remaining, cruised thereafter. Howard held to only 17 and not an efficient 17 either, somewhat related to the lack of end-game fouling. $1 hot dog was a good bonus for us as the 11:00 start time necessitated eating there. Caught a couple shirts from 3-pointers, 1 legit and 1 from a dude near us when it didn't fit him. Game actually ended 5 minutes early. Stephen Bardo, Bo Ellis, Steve Novak on hand.
Milwaukee is just an ok place
with the gate city mafia
