Afternoon of college basketball at Barclays Center

We usually go to several college basketball games every year as the ticket prices are much lower than those of professional basketball.  Today there was a doubleheader featuring Brigham Young (BYU) vs U Mass in game 1 and Minnesota vs Alabama in game 2.  Our plan was to see game 1 and leave at halftime of game 2.  It is just too long to sit through two games.

U Mass held a comfortable lead for most of the game but BYU rallied in the second half and won with a dunk by Yoeli Childs.

Game Recap

We left the second game with U Mass leading Alabama 41-29 at halftime.  However, we missed all the excitement late in the game.  As a result of a scuffle 7 Alabama players were ejected leaving the team with only 5 players. One other player fouled out while another had to leave after an injury.  This left 3 Alabama players against 5 for Minnesota.  The final score was 89-84 in favor of Minnesota.
