EDITORIAL: Sure Shot — Go see a women's basketball game; be a part of history


Senior forward Tinara Moore (2) and junior forward Reyna Frost (13) go for a defensive block against the University of Buffalo on Feb. 14 at Alumni Arena.

We talk a lot about school pride and the Chippewa spirit during key points in the academic year — Welcome Weekend, homecoming and graduation are some of them. It's fun to get swept up in the pomp and circumstance of Central Michigan University when it's warm out or when students and alumni gather together for a shared experience. 

Getting off the couch to go and support your school after another February snowstorm? That's something else.

We are proud of Central Michigan University women's basketball team. The Chippewas have a chance to make their mark in history by winning the Mid-American Conference Tournament and earning a spot in the NCAA Tournament in March. 

With only five of games left this season – three of which are at home – it would be silly to miss an opportunity to see arguably one of the finest teams of athletes on campus. 

Go support the group that's riding on the shoulders of 50 years of program history, ready to put their own mark in the record books. Following Wednesday's heartbreaking loss against the Buffalo Bulls in New York, you only have a few chances left to see the team before it travels to the MAC Tournament — as a possible No. 1 seed.

Do it now, so you don't regret it later.

Central Michigan women's basketball has a chance to make history.

Be a part of it. Be there and show them you care.
