UNLV was on the road so it was a Utah 2-Step on Martin Luther King Day

The Big Sky conference will be playing Covid catch-up for a spell due to a large number of cancelations so both the Dixie State Ladies and the Southern Utah University Men played make up games on Monday.

Utah Valley squeaked out a 68-65 road victory when the Trail Blazers came up short on a 3 point shot attempt that would have forced overtime.

Up the road in Cedar City visiting Portland State went shot for shot with the homesteading Thunderbirds until the final few minutes. SUU led 70-69 before they finally put away the pesky Vikings by 10 points.

Both contests proved to be highly entertaining from start to finish 👏 and nothing but the best for all four schools going forward.

Before all of the other Home Town Teams there was Fresno State !

CWO4 Charles T Carter was stationed in many places during his nearly 30 year Military career but the one that became my birth place was a small base in Lemoore, California. When you try to explain to folks where Lemoore is located you say ” find Fresno and look just South “.

Fresno State is my original hometown College and pulling for the Bulldogs has always been easy enough. Tonight the Men’s basketball 🏀 team crosses the mountain pass to square off with MWC rival UNLV.

This creates what I like to call a Win-Win contest. If the home team wins its good and if the visiting Bulldogs prove superior even better.

. Booogz and I will start the Holiday weekend inside the Thomas and Mack Center watching two of the three NCAA teams that were coached by Jerry Tarkanian.

Hoping everyone has a Blessed Weekend !
