WE WON!!!  WE WON!!!  WE WON!!!  WE MADE IT TO THE SWEET 16!!   We beat Concordia Nebraska 91-86.  It was such a fun game.  Everyone on the team gave 100% the whole time.  We flew to the ball, we trapped, and we played together.  We did everything needed to be as successful as we were.  I was at a loss for words after the final buzzer went off, which for me is unusual.   Everyone was cheering and smiling from ear to ear.  But a moment I know I’ll always remember was as we were celebrating, I heard coach telling one of the players “You guys did it.”  For me it made the moment even more special because you could hear how happy, proud, and excited she was.   We went into the locker and started cheering, “It just doesn’t matter.  It just doesn’t matter.” Because before the game we watched a clip from the movie Meatballs, thanks to Coach Porter, who gave a Devotional on it a few weeks ago.  The clip was from the scene where Bill Murray starts cheering, “It just doesn’t matter.  It just doesn’t matter.”  It was how we went into the game.  We went out there being the lower the seed and told ourselves “it just doesn’t matter.”  We went out there and did just that.  We showed that ranking and seeds “just doesn’t matter.”
