Went w/ Bennett. Game was tight really late, Furman tied until 10:00 left. Rule kicked in with 7:34 remaining but a great effort from the Blue Hose. Stephen Bardo on the call but didn't want to occupy Bennett that long so I didn't pursue an autograph. Bennett got a balloon snake and we split a lemonade from the designated driver freebie. First time I noticed there was a fan assistance center on the 2nd deck (212). Took Bennett to the couch lounge, which he sort of liked but since the couches didn't face the court he didn't stay long. Parked under the courthouse. Good day.
Close for most of the first half but BCU's Shawntrez Davis got hurt and they didn't have much to compete with afterwards. Isaiah Bailey was pretty good and someone dribbled through an MU defender's legs en route to a layup but it was not close in the 2nd half. Stephen Bardo on hand to broadcast for FS2 but I had to run since Heidi had a movie to get to. Was able to get to the 3rd row for the 2nd half. Howard seemed on pace for 50+ for a lot of the game but got doubled/tripled and stats fell off after the half.
First official college game at the 414um. UMBC's first game after their NCAA run vs. Virginia the last season. Stephen Bardo was commentator for FS1, got a couple of his autographs after the game. Craig Counsell on hand also; coming off of the Brewers NLCS season. Got 1 of his autographs after the game. Over at 17:32. Parked by the church. Second half sat in front of some annoying dude that went on and on about his dumb teaching job.
