Holiday Gift Guide: Get to the game

On the 4th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me .....

Tix. What better gift than to treat your WBB friend or family member to an actual game? Some possibilities:

*Longwood at Notre Dame (Dec. 28): See Skylar Diggins and traipse around South Bend. Bring a heavy coat. We hear it's cold there.

*Richmond vs. James Madison, Lehigh Christmas Classic (Dec. 29): These games are in Bethlehem. Need we say more? (That's Pennsylvania, not the other Bethlehem.....)

*Virginia at Duke (Jan. 2): Love the Duke campus plus you get to see the one that got away from the Cavs, Virginia Beach's Elizabeth Williams, the top freshman in the ACC.

*Old Dominion at William and Mary (Jan. 26): Walk around Merchant Square and then take in this CAA matchup that should be a good one. The Tribe has given ODU fits in Williamsburg of late; this could be the year they pull off the upset.

*Delaware at James Madison (Jan. 29): Any time you have a chance to see Elena Delle Donne in Virginia, take it. Let the ESPN announcers fawn over Brittney Griner. We've got EDD in the CAA.
*NCAA Tournament first and second rounds (March 17 and 19 or 18 and 20): The tournament returns to the Constant Center in Norfolk (and there's a regional in Raleigh if you're so inclined). Tickets aren't on sale yet, but your WBB brethren surely wouldn't want to pass up the chance to see the tournament up close. Give an IOU; tix should be going on sale soon!
