I have probably never written more about UWM Basketball than I have done in the last week. It started one week ago with them. Winning their first game in Green Bay at the Horizon League Tournament and the Madness kept going becoming the first five seed from the Horizon to get to the NCAA Tournament. An improbable of run as we have seen any team ever make in this state. Sure they are going to face a heavyweight in the NCAA's,and could smoked, but who cares.
UWM getting to the Big Dance is equal to Duke making it to the Final Four. So to the UWM Program, they will be treated like royalty in the next week and deserve it. It may be a once in a lifetime experience to play in the NCAA's. For one week,they will be able to bask in the spotlight.
Its a safe bet, most of those players on the team will be working in office jobs someday, and will never earn a paycheck playing the game. But playing in the NCAA Tournament is something that can never be taken from them whether they are the team's best player or last man off the bench..Enjoy the moment,as Coach Rob Jeter has been telling his team.
