"I’m a huge basketball fan. I don’t think I missed a basketball game the four years I was at UA. Even over the holidays, I would stay in town or drive back and forth from Phoenix to see the games. After I graduated, I missed spending time on campus, so we bought season tickets to football and basketball and started driving down for every game. When it’s game day and you’re wearing school colors, everywhere you go people walk by and say, “Bear Down!” I love that. It’s part of my connection to the University. Even though I’m not on the court or the field, I’m a part of that."
