A crowd of supporters gathered on campus in 30 degree weather and chanted “We are BU” as the players emerged from their bus holding the championship trophy.
Mayor Greg Fischer was on hand to commend the team. “We won a basketball game yesterday,” he said “but we learned a little bit about the game of life yesterday as well. I got to tell you, this team, this coach it represents everything good about our city and about our country.”
“This is a very special group of young men, very humble, and it couldn’t have happened to a better group,” he said “But it took everybody and as you can see, this is very special and this doesn’t happen to too many people and it takes everybody, it takes the whole BU community and this is one for Knights Nation.”
When the team arrived, there was a parking ticket on Coach Scott Davenport’s car.
