OSU student basketball season tickets sold out this year in 6 minutes. I was one of the 2400 students waiting at their computers at 6:00 PM when tickets went on sale last semester to buy them.
This year Ohio State has been in the top 25 throughout the year and has played many other top 25 opponents on its home court at which I have gotten the privilege to attend. One of my favorite games thus far this season was the Ohio State vs Michigan game. I arrived about 3 and ½ hours before the game to get in line and lucked out with getting lower bowl seats. The rivalry between Ohio State and Michigan is like nothing I have seen before, the energy was incredible in the arena of 18,000 people. Ohio State went on to win the game 56-53. It was a thrilling game to watch as the teams battled back and forth at the end of the game.
Being from Louisville, I am a Cardinal basketball fan and with the Cards being ranked #1 in the country at the time I decided to road trip back home to catch a game. (Louisville is only ~3.5 hours away from Columbus.) A group of MAcc students and I went to Louisville for the weekend to watch the Syracuse vs Louisville basketball game since some MAcc students are Syracuse fans. One of the many fun things about the Fisher MAcc program is meeting people from all different backgrounds and finding common ground with them. Even though we were cheering for different teams, we had a great time at the game which went down to the last minute. (Syracuse winning unfortunately)
