If you haven’t been able to tell from any of my tweets or photos I’ve uploaded in the past, I LOVE LOVE LOVE going to Longwood Basketball games!! We don’t have a football team so everyone gets so pumped and ready for Basketball season to start!!
Last night’s game was kind of bittersweet. It was senior night, so all of the team managers, members of the men’s team, cheerleaders, Blue Heat Dance Team who will be graduating in May were recognized at their final home game. It was also the last home basketball game I’ll attend as a Longwood student. I just started getting into Basketball last year at my first Longwood game, and I wish I hadn’t missed 2 whole years of games! I love everything about it, and more importantly, enjoying these awesome games with some of my closest friends
All of the senior players were presented with photos of each of them in action–I thought this was super cool!
One of the senior players, Antwan Carter, had a big night earlier in the week: he became the school’s all-time scoring leader!! Last night at the Senior Night game, he was presented with a commemorative ball for his accomplishments! (Definitely check out this link for a better picture!)
All of the senior players & team managers with their escorts:
Elwood and the Bojangles chicken!
Longwood played UVA-Wise in the final home game:
One of my favorite parts of the night: following the game, the team came over to the student side, which I thought was awesome since we all love the team!
So while the game was great, I’m really going to miss coming out to these games!! I’ll hopefully be able to come back next year for some of the weekend games
Also, be sure to check our the Longwood Athletics website to see more about this game!
