Why We’re the Best

As many of you may know, housing sign-ups for next year have already started, and one obvious conclusion has already been made: MHPS is by far the best Residential Commons.  How can I so easily draw this conclusion you might ask? We’ll it’s simple. My conclusion comes solely from demand and return. MHPS occupation has the highest demand out of all the RC’s. This upcoming year, only four spots have opened up for RC transfer students. What does that tell you? That tells you that a vast majority of our Commons is returning next year. Why would the return? Because we’re the best, so why would you want to leave? Thank you MHPS residents for making our RC the best. And for all you non-MHPS residents trying to get in, I would try to get in too. Good luck!

And remember friends: Tria Ut Unum. #ponyup

What We Can Learn from March Madness

It was at this point last week that most residents experienced a roller coast ride of emotions. From anxiousness, to excitement, to anguish, and then frustration. Yes, our beloved basketball team was robbed of a chance to enter the Sweet Sixteen and continue their pursuit of a coveted national championship. I still can’t believe referees have the audacity to call goal tending on an airball.

Obviously not a goal tend. Yanick Moreira caught an airball.

Yanick Moreira took it the hardest. Hours after the game, Yanick posted tweets apologizing for his “goaltend” to the SMU community, and to his fellow teammates. Students were frustrated with the refs, Yanick, and his other teammates for turning over the ball a play before the “game winning” play by UCLA. An onslaught of rule checking and rewinding of replays ensued for the next few days.

However, it’s March Madness for a reason. This is the time of buzzer beaters, Cinderella Stories, and crazy upsets. Although SMU took a punch to the gut, the goaltending play added to the Madness, and now UCLA is playing in the Sweet Sixteen.

Although we may still be bitter about the game, the word’s from Yanick himself add comfort and insight.

Let’s all take Yanick’s words to heart. Our Mustangs had a GREAT season. Let’s not allow the UCLA game to take that away.

Basketball Tournaments and THE Tournament

As we come up on Spring Break, everyone should take a look at our SMU Basketball teams!

The American Athletic Conference’s Women’s tournament starts this Friday and continues through the beginning of spring break.

The men then play one more home game Sunday at 2:00pm. If they win, they will end their season 23-6 and at the top of our conference. The men’s American Athletic Conference tournament starts on March 12th. If the men win the AAC tournament, we get a guaranteed spot in the NCAA tournament which starts the following week. If the men don’t win the AAC, there is still a good chance we will get placed in the NCAA Tournament since we are currently ranked #22!

Whether you’re on the beach, in the mountains, or just sitting at home, be sure to Pony Up and support our Mustangs over spring break!
