“It’s the best weekend for basketball!” That’s all I knew before making the trip to Cork for the Cup games this past weekend. Saturday morning, we headed down and bounced from gym to gym watching all of the games. Throughout the day there were some thrilling wins and some crazy upsets but that’s what tournaments are all about, right?
The last game of the day was the IT Carlow men’s game and it was so exciting watching them win and advance to the finals for the first time. Even though it was a great weekend of games, it was also a great weekend to reunite with many of the scholars I have not seen in forever. It was exciting hearing about everyone’s time whether at home or out traveling.
Now as I am back in Carlow, I understand why everyone looks forward to this weekend. Not only do you get to see some great games, but you also get to see so many familiar faces.
