Spring is full swing here at the Hilltop! I just go the opportunity to sit in an alumnus seats at the Seniors last Basketball game.

Believing in Basketball

Feb 25, 2016|Athletics|

I'm not saying SMU basketball got me through the end of last semester, but SMU basketball got me through the end of last semester.

By Jacqui Jacoby Early last semester, my RA called me around 8:00 pm and said, “Do you want to do something spontaneous?” Due to my self-diagnosed condition of Fear of Missing Out, I replied with an excited yes, completely unaware of what would soon become an SMU tradition.
