On Saturday we had free tickets to the UCLA Women’s Basketball game through k’s basketball league. We invited my parents since my dad is a UCLA alum and an avid UCLA sports fan.
It was Nikkei Appreciation Day, so they honored a couple of pioneering Nikkei women basketball players.
The game was pretty exciting. UCLA trailed in the beginning, then pulled ahead. Baylor brought it back to a four point differential, but UCLA kept the lead through the end. According to D, UCLA was ranked #8 and Baylor was #3.
k had fun sitting with her teammates. However, they were not enthusiastic enough to make the Jumbo Tron.
One of k’s teammates participated in a half-time contest. She did not win, but it was close, and I am not sure the other competitor completely followed the rules.
The alumni band was there. We heard the official marching band outside practicing for the UCLA-USC football game that night.
This ended up being practically an all-day event due to horrendous traffic. However, we were home just in time to watch the Cal v. Stanford game (us) and the UCLA v. USC game (my dad).
