Twas the Night Before Christmas by LadySwish

Twas the night
Before Christmas
When all though the state
Not a player was stirring
Not even HU's Malia Tate.

The basketballs sat
By the hoop with care
Waiting for Kirby Burkholder
To soon be there.

Lexie Gerson and Kaitlyn Mathieu were nestled
Each safe in her beds
While visions of winning the Cavalier Classic and Cyclone Challenge
Danced in their heads.

And Uju Ugoka and Rachel Gordon
Gave rebounding a rest
Awaiting a conference season
That is sure to be the best.

When out on the court
There arose such a clatter
That Carey Green removed his stocking cap
And shouted, "What's the matter?"

Over near the rim
Oh, what a sight!
There was Karen Barefoot
Singing "Blue Christmas" this night.

When what
To my wandering eyes should appear
But a miniature sleigh
And eight tiny reindeer.

With a little ol driver
With a couple of sticks
Was that Santa Claus?
Or was it David Six?

More rapid than dribblers
Driving down the lane
As he whistled
And shouted
And called
Them by name.

Now Camille!
Now Isis!
Now all you young Rams
It's time for the holidays
Stop being such hams!

To the top
Of the key
To the top
How they roared
Now dash away
When going for the board!

So up
To the housetop
The courses
They flew
With a sleigh
Full of toys
And Heather Tobeck, too.

And then
In a twinkle
I heard on the floor
Gen Okoro leaping up
To greet Santa at the door.

He was dressed
All in red
A bundle of toys on his back
I know one for Taylor Brown
Must be in that sack.

His eyes - how they sparkled
His cheeks full of good looks
It's Santa indeed
Played by Kenny Brooks.

A wink of his eye
And a suit as brilliant as fire
No, wait that's not Kenny
It's Mike McGuire.

He sprang to his sleigh
to his team gave a whistle
Away they all sprinted
Like the down of a thistle.

But I heard him exclaim
With one last wish
Merry Christmas to all
from LadySwish!
