Well, it's that time of year when records are washed away and everyone begins a new season.
Ours begins Thursday. At this point of the year we win, or we go home. My dad gave me the best advice I'd ever heard last year before our Big Sky Tournament when he said, "you know, if you keep winning, you'll end up in the national tournament."
Yes dad, it's as easy and as difficult as that. Some have thoughts of sitting in front of the television Monday evening to hear what seed they would get for the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
However, for us here at Montana State, our only focus is how to defeat Northern Arizona on Thursday. That game is the only one that counts. Many people don't get a second chance at redeeming themselves, and a third opportunity is usually unheard of. It's an opportunity that was sure don't want to waste and one that NAU doesn't want to give.
One thing is for sure. IT WILL BE EXCITING!
