One of my absolute favorite things at BYU has been going to basketball games, and quite tragically yesterday was our last home game of our magical season that currently has us ranked No. 3 in the nation. When I was choosing which college to go to, going to the basketball games with my dad was actually an important part of the selection process (we saw BYU play Utah, which was fantastic). Naturally since yesterday was the last game of the season we recognized our beyond amazing seniors, Jimmer Fredette, Jackson Emery and Logan Magnusson. But this time it wasn’t just the senior games for our players, it was my senior game as well (although no one seemed to celebrate me. Strange…)
However, if the season did have to come to an end it ended perfectly. We won (102-78), and there was confetti for winning the Mountain West Championship and all sorts of magic. Plus, the student section did this with all 5,000 students:

I miss these games in the Marriott Center already! At least we’ve still got the conference tournament and March Madness.
