Watch Party, Championship Game

Awesome turnout on Saturday, Alumni! Thanks for coming out to cheer with us!

“Long I pondered my coach’s cryptic talk of victory, but time has proven him wise, for from student to graduate, the word was spread that bold Izzo and his hardened cagers, so close to home, played the game of their lives… not just for Spartans, but for all of Michigan and the promise this state holds. Now here on this ragged patch of earth called Ford Field, let UNC’s hordes face obliteration! Just there the barbarian Tarheels huddle, sheer terror gripping tight their hearts with icy fingers… knowing full well what merciless horrors the Big East suffered at the Dunks and Defense of 15 Spartans, yet they stare now across the stadium at 70,000 Spartans representing 10,000,000 pride-filled Michiganders. HA-OOH! This day we rescue a state from depression and hardship and usher in a future brighter than anything we can imagine. Give thanks, alumni, to Tom Izzo and the brave Spartan Team! To victory!”

Way to go Spartans! Championship Game!

We play the UNC Tarheels this Monday, April 6th, for the title. This is the final and most important game of the season, so join the other Bay Area Alumni to support them from afar!

Tip of is at 6:20 P.M. PT, and there are a few locations you can meet us at for your convenience: Pete’s Tavern in San Francisco, Stadium Pub in downtown Walnut Creek and Double D’s in Los Gatos for the South Bay folks. Be sure to arrive early to ensure yourself a seat!
