Our TG College Basketball Finals Experience winner John Doyle treated his dad to the Experience of a lifetime over the weekend.
After applying to Ticket Galaxy's College Basketball Finals Experience weeks earlier, their very own Loyola Ramblers made it into the Final Four® as an 11 seed. Impossible? No. However, the odds were stacked against Loyola, and their performance in the tournament granted them the prime underdog and potential Cinderella story.
Doyle's father graduated from Loyola, and the pair have been attending Loyola men's basketball games since he was a little kid. The family grew up in Chicago and carried their deep-rooted fandom to San Antonio for the 2018 Final Four®.
"It was an amazing experience and a dream come true for my dad and I to be able to see our team in the Final Four, all thanks to [Ticket] Galaxy tickets!" said Doyle.
Loyola lost 69-57 to #3 seed Michigan, but the team fended off the higher-ranked team for the majority of the game, only letting it slip with around ten minutes to spare in the second half. Loyola's team was the feel-good story of the tournament from their unexpected run to Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt’s attendance in a wheelchair at every game as a good luck charm.
The pair attended the National Championship on Monday featuring Villanova vs. Michigan. Nova cleaned out Kansas during the following Final Four® game in mediocre excitement, and they did not disappoint in a 79-62 win over Michigan to win the 2018 National Championship title.
These Experience are always exciting to offer from Ticket Galaxy, but when the basketball stars align just right to see an underdog team in the Finals, it's extra special to be able to give diehard fans the chance to watch the action unfold.
Enough Rambler-ing. We'll see you next season.
