U.A.L.R. Basketball teams are heading to the Big Dance!

This afternoon, my parents and I headed to Hot Springs to cheer on the University of Arkansas at Little Rock's basketball teams. We have grown-up watching UALR basketball, and have season tickets each year. We were so excited that both teams made it to the Sun Belt Conference Championship this year. AND that it was only an hour away.
At 1:00pm it was the Ladies vs. Western Kentucky!!
It was such a good game. 66-59 we came out on top!
Let the celebration begin!
Then the 6pm guys game went down to the wire. Even with us behind by 6 in the final minutes.
With 7 seconds left we were down by 1 point, then with 1.7 seconds left we were up by two thanks to senior, Solomon's three pointer!!!
Both teams are headed to the NCAA Tournament!!!
How great for the UALR program!!!
Last time they played in the conference championship, Dad took us to watch them at Barton Coliseum and Derek Fisher was playing in it. But sadly they lost that game.

Congrats UALR!
Definitely root the Arkansas {only AR school in the tourney as of now and probably the only one} teams on!!!
