Tuesday night I get to cover my first ever college basketball game as a professional sports writer. That sounds pretty cool, at least to me.

The team I’ll be covering made the D3 tournament last year, but is sitting at .500 so far this year. It’ll be a little easier than high school, since I won’t have to keep stats. But that means I’ll have to do a better job of finding the narrative within the game than I’ve been able to do on the high school side. I’ll be interested to see how quickly a D3 game is played. I’m hoping it’s a brisk pace, as our weeknight deadline is 10:15. I know a few of my readers can vouch for the quality of D3 ball. I’m looking forward to it.
