If you are unable to attend the games, Mike Reuter will have all the games on 660 KEYZ News Radio. Mike has a keen eye and calls a great game that will leave you on the edge of your seat. He points out that each of the teams matches up fairly well, and they all have great coaches. With the fanbase each team brings to the tournament games, it should be another fun tournament season. To quote Kobe Bryant, “I’ll do whatever it takes to win games, whether it’s sitting on a bench waving a towel, handing a cup of water to a teammate, or hitting the game-winning shot.” Keep that in mind as we start that tournament play. Welcome to the postseason and good luck to the participants!
