In pregame, when he walked on the floor, they gave him a standing ovation.
Wow. I'm happy that they got to see him but with all the revenue the team generates, I imagine only stupid NCAA rules stand in the way of the BB program buying her a ticket once a year. A parent should be able to see his or her son play if the program can afford it. He seems like a great young man; I'm sure she's been a great mother to him.Here‘s a nice article that shares a little more detail on Solo’s fam. Nice article for those that live farther away from Ames.
@ Saint Mary’s would be a quality game. 90 miles from Sac.It would be nice if they could somehow schedule a game in California next year so his family could see him play as a senior without traveling too far.
I do not know if that will be possible with the return trip coming from Oregon State to Ames, though. It is still nice when you can make that happen.
