Valley women's touranment

In Thursday's issue of The Times-Delphic, columnist Angie DiSalvo makes a good point: you can spare $10 and attend the first round of the Valley women's tournament at the Knapp Center.

Eighth-seeded Drake faces No. 9 Wichita State at 6:05 p.m., and you can stay for the 7-10 game if you want, too. Five dollars per game isn't a bad deal.

I know $10 seems steep because tickets to games are already built into tuition payments, but it'll be money well spent. It'll give you a chance to appreciate basketball beneath the rim, and you'll make the women's basketball players happy. Seriously. Nick Grant has told me twice that he and his teammates notice when people are in the stands and they truly appreciate it. Not to mention, the host of previous Valley tournaments, regardless of the seed, has done some major damage in the bracket.

You'll see me in the stands, wearing my Drake blue and sans $10.
