My first week home was a success! I got to catch up and spend time with family and friends, along with sleeping in my own bed!! As I mentioned in my previous blog, basketball this time of the year is huge for me at home. My mom’s team took part in a Christmas tournament up in North Jersey, featuring some of the top two teams in the state. Day one was pretty uneventful for mom’s team, winning by nearly 50 points. However, on day two of the Christmas tournament they played the defending Tournament of Champions winners, St. John Vianney. I sat in the first row eagerly awaiting the start of the top tier match up. It was back and forth for the first quarter, when mom’s team exploded in the second quarter, en route to a 25 point victory! This was a fantastic win for the program, and seeing the excitement on my mom’s face after the game was amazing.


Later on that day I traveled down to Jersey City to watch Aunt Pat’s team take on conference foe Niagara. This was an intense game throughout, with Saint Peter’s coming out on top in the end! Bench players stepped up, as well as the underclassmen, and it was a pleasure to watch.


Lastly, Rutgers men’s basketball opens up Big Ten play tomorrow, and hopefully they can squeak out a win to complete the trifecta for the week! Well done to all, and keep rolling!
