On Sunday February 11, the LDP had its first social event of the semester. When planning this I thought “in what way could we hang out and support our school?” While watching the SIUC men’s basketball team, I saw that they were on a five game win streak which put them at second place in the Missouri Valley Conference. We were playing Bradley University on the upcoming Sunday, which seemed like a perfect opportunity to get together and cheer on the Dawgs.
At the basketball game, we had about a dozen LDP members put aside their busy schedules to come out and support the Salukis. We all wore our matching yellow LDP t-shirts to display our teamship. Cheering loudly for our team with great friends and de-stressing was an awesome way to start off the semester. I guess we were a good luck charm in the sense that the Salukis had an outstanding 74-57 win over Bradley! Overall, I would say that it was a great way for us to bond together as a team; over a fresh Saluki victory!
