One of the things that is really hard about this time of year is that we don't usually get to enjoy the wins very long. Almost as soon as one game ends we start preparing for the next one. Saturday was a little different. After winning our game and scoring over 100 points for the fifth time this season, we watched half of the UCC men's game, ate a great dinner at Sweet Tomatoes, and then stopped off at a new Chuck E. Cheese's for a few friendly competitions and a lot of laughs. We got home late from Portland but it was fun. I wonder how many times Bobby Knight or Phil Jackson has taken their teams to Chuck E. Cheese's after a win?
The game itself was fun too. Everybody scored including five in double figures. Dee Tupai had 11 points and 10 rebounds in only 10 minutes of playing time. Denay Martin passed out 10 assists. Marji Maxfield and Jacque Anderson both played a lot of minutes and were very productive. Samantha Russell made her first career three pointer even though she suffered a "freaky" injury on Friday that resulted in severe bruising on both sides of her neck.
