Major drifting snow on the way in; record-low temperatures coming so they moved the game time up from 7 PM to 5 PM. This was somewhat annoying and I had to take 2 hours off of work. Went w/ Griffin. Damon Key's son Jaylen was on NIU. First game for me @ NIU. Cool arena, the floor is sweet with the black midcourt and husky eyes, then hardwood 3-point areas. Got a hot dog & chips for $6. Parked in the Southeast lot and walked in, they escorted us to the ticket area indoors, which was awesome, I was happy that we didn't have to walk outdoors. Free parking was cool. They closed off the "upper deck" so all seats were GA and $8, didn't need to pay $10 to sit lower level, that was nice. Rule happened around 3:39 remaining, NIU got the home win.
Exciting game, with 19 lead changes -- including the go-ahead 3-pointer by Gavin Block with 38 seconds left. Jason Carter scored all of his team-high 16 points after halftime to rally the Bobcats; Block added 15. Went with the Ransoms. First time seeing the new video board, which looks great.
Went with Eric Grau. OU fell behind by 13 almost immediately, but clawed back and took a three-point lead before halftime. It trailed by just two points with 10:30 to go before falling apart under a wave of turnovers and easy XU baskets.
