Basketball Tourney

The USF Women's Basketball team is slated to play in tonight's NCAA Tournament.

Two or three years ago, my daughter befriended an International student from USF.  She originates from Sweden and has joined us for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter holidays.  My daughter has studied with her and helped her with her English papers.  We met her family when they visited a couple of years ago. Ivana is a Senior this year, and plays for the USF Women's Basketball team.

But when Ivana asked my husband and me to stand in for her parents, we were both excited and honored.

The USF Women's basketball team is seeded sixth in the tournament.  So the prospects of this being an exciting game are high.

How cool! We had an exchange student from Brazil a few years ago. It was great. My parents hosted 2 different students when I was still in school. Life long memories.
