The Central Michigan Basketball Experience

In my opinion, college basketball is one of the most exciting things in all of sports. The fans, the rivalries, the tournaments and the electricity in the air. There’s just something about being at a college basketball game that is hard to compare to almost any other sporting event.

So with that said, what could be better than attending a university that has a Division 1 college basketball team? Some might say nothing, and you know that this journalist is in that category.

In this article, I plan to show you all that goes down during the season. From the fans, to the game itself and even where the games have been played. I want to convey to you, the reader, how much I love this game of basketball. I want you to see the effort the players, fans and coaches put in to make this game what it is.

The Chips In Action

What’s a better way to show the intensity of the players and the fans, then through pictures? Pictures can help tell the story in ways that me just talking to you could never do. Lines of text could never have the same effect as even one picture could have.

The Fan’s Opinion

One of the most important parts of the game of basketball is fan participation. Something that sets college basketball apart from the pros is how passionate the fans are.

The fans at CMU aren’t just cheering for their state’s team, their cheering for their school and their fellow classmates. College basketball fan’s passion is unparalleled in almost any sports.

Getting their feelings from game to game is a crucial part of the sport.

Timeline

All in all, no matter how much fun the game is, it still comes to down to how many wins and losses you have at the end of the season. You can have the most fun during a season and of you have a higher number in the loss column, you’ll be on the hot seat as a coach.

To help illustrate this, I’ve created an interactive timeline that you can go through and see where the games were played, who they have played and what the final score was.

The Last Word

All in all I hoped I this properly illustrated the point I was trying to make. I believe that with the help of the visual and audio aides that I provided, it’s easy to immerse yourself in the men’s basketball experience.

College basketball is an amazing sport and an amazing overall experience as well. The excitement during a CMU men’s basketball game is almost unparalleled on campus.
