Page 2 of Game was not really in doubt after a strong first half run by Trinity and then they just kept pushing the lead in the second half. Trinity becomes the first team to get both a football title and the Sweet 16 title in the same school year. Trinity was the picture of dominance for most of the year and the entirety of this tournament. Congrats Trinity!... 57 comments | 3521 Views | Go to page 1 →

Dieudonne was asked what it was like to finally win a basketball title at a football school. "I don't really think it's just a football school anymore," he said with a smile. "We've got a great football team and a great basketball team this year. We'll try to continue that tradition now."

A work about officiating.
I've been very critical of officials before and was terrified that Trinity would be in a 8 v. 5 situation every game they played. My fears were totally unjustified. Of the 4 games that Trinity played 2 (Friday & Championship) were not just well officiated I will say the officials did an excellent job. The first game I really believe the Willis kid from BE got a few calls but I thought they did a decent job. The fourth game (Sat. morning) was a little shaky but maybe it was just early?

Really was impressed by Trinity administration and how they handled their cheering section. Sure boys are going to be less than angels. (Come on guys we were all like that at one time or another when we were young. Some of us still are that way. ) But when they got out of line with a cheer that was not in good taste or got personal administration was quick to put a stop to it.
Not saying I have read the entire book, but this is just my observation of the cover of that book.

So proud to be a Trinity grad. I was there for the first football championship and now the first basketball championship. It's really special.

It is not the size of the trophy that matters it is what it represents. Make it an inch tall and the Shamrocks would still treasure it equally as special. Congrats to Trinity, it was your year all the way!

But he really called a good game for the finals, and a good tournament as well. He probably remembered the boos from '99 and didn't want to have a repeat.
Actually, Trinity was so powerful this year that it would have taken a very obvious ax job by offcials to have denied them the title.

I was a little disappointed in Scott County and Trinity's crowds last night. For a state championship game I would have thought their fan bases and alumni would have been much larger. UK and UL on TV shouldn't have been a factor with the fan bases of the two school left standing in the state basketball tournament. Even worse for Scott County is they are a neighboring county to Fayette where the tournament was played. It's 12 miles from Georgetown to Lexington.
I know if my little county were ever in that position there wouldn't be a thousand people left in the county (there's only 4500 population to begin with).
