Now is the time when we dance
Just back from the Cell where the UW-Milwaukee Panthers beat Butler to win the Horizon League tournament and advance to the NCAA tournament for the third time in the last four years. The team is senior dominated and will be different next year, but the last four years have been unadulterated basketball pleasure. Milwaukee plays ninety feet for fourty minutes and this group has never quit. Tonight their leading scorer Joah Tucker picked up his fourth foul less than a minute into the second half. We were up by eight. When he returned twelve minutes later, we were up by fifteen. It would be reckless to predict another trip to the sweet sixteen, but I'm willing to believe.
