Behind The Scenes: Xavier In the NCAA Tournament





The following blog is the second in a series of entries written by Xavier Men's Soccer sophomore defender Andy Kaplan as his team enters the NCAA Tournament after winning it's second Atlantic 10 Championship Title.

Today started with practice at the usual time and we got on the bus right after to start the five-hour trip to Morgantown.


The first couple of hours were quiet study and sleep time, so I just read a book and took a quick nap. After we stopped at a rest station, our movie of choice, "The Prestige", got put in, definitely a good choice. The guys that had seen the movie before (myself included) had a great time watching the reactions of the guys that hadn't when the big twist at the end came around.

We got stuck in traffic and some bad weather, so the trip took about an hour longer than expected, but I caught a bit of extra sleep so I didn't mind. We made it safely to the hotel, jogged and stretched to shake our legs out, and headed to dinner at the same place that we went last year.

After dinner we walked back to the hotel and had our usual team meeting. All in all, it feels a lot like last year, but hopefully there'll be a different result this time around.
