Of course, I spent a lot of long nights in there when Emily played, and saw some good games, and some not so good.
|Sans smoke and hat, this is me .....|
It was nice to talk with Sandi last night before the game and catch up on stuff - both her kids are now playing college basketball, and her husband, Fred, is the Southeast athletic director. Sandi has had some very good teams at Southeast and I'm glad she is doing well.
Unfortunately for her, last night's game didn't end well. It was among the wildest high school hoop games I have ever seen - QHS finally won in overtime on a last second shot. Despite the loss, coach Devoe still gave me some good quotes and took things in stride.
Quincy is an entertaining team to watch. Jada Humphrey, the jitterbug point guard, plays with an unmatched passion and she simply willed her team to a big win last night. The Blue Devils have a lot of younger players and the future looks good for the program, and I couldn't be happier for coach Bergman and his team.
QHS has a home game against Galesburg Thursday night at 6:30, plays at Quincy Notre Dame in the Superfan Shootout at 9 a.m. Saturday against undefeated Clopton (Missouri), and has one more home game a week from Thursday against Moline before the regional tournament starts.
Good grief. I'm starting to sound like a sports guy again ....
