Didn’t we make it to the final with BP last time it was in Tampa?

I was there when we lost to Pearl and Auburn two- three yrs ago in the finals in Nashville. My son and I were so stoked to be there in person. Auburn was too athletic and beat us to a drum with three ball and their transition game. We were so ticked and dejected as we both were confident we would win.

I attribute that loss to all the mental and physical energy we used up playing Kentucky the day before. Auburn cruised by FL and we outlasted KY in an OT slugfest. We literally had nothing left in the tank for Auburn.

The SEC Tournament is in a great spring break destination this year.
Amalie Arena in downtown Tampa is about a 30-45 minute drive to Clearwater beaches. Downtown is nice but pricey for hotels. North side area around Wiregrass Mall and Tampa Outlet Mall has newer hotels like Holiday Inn, Hampton Inn, Hyatt that are probably cheaper. About 25 min to Amalie from those places. Ybor is the big bar area about 10 min from Amalie and there is a trolley system between Amalie and Ybor.

Now, THAT is a great scouting report!
