During this second semester of the school year our university game schedule began. We’ve had three games and me and Kayla finally got our first win in Ireland! University games here are much different than what we experienced back home during the college season, in fact, our first university game was the first time all of us had been together. Honestly we were all pleasantly surprised at how well we all played as a team for never really getting much practice time together. Our first university game ended in a tough loss during OT to Limerick but we were all really happy with how well the game went.
Later on we got our first win of the season against CIT, which also happened to be me and Kayla’s first victory in Ireland (there’s still some time for our first with the Mystics). It was incredibly relieving to finally win a game over here. We even technically got our second when the next team forfeited, if you’ll count that. Our university season is over for now until Varsities in April. We’re all really excited, this year its being held in Dublin. I haven’t really taken the time to see too much of Dublin so far, so I can’t wait to spend the weekend there. One of my teammates was on the university team last year and she’s told us a lot about the tournament. We’re all pumped for the basketball and just to hangout in Dublin with everyone.
