Unfortunately, SUU's basketball team fell in the first round of the Summit League tournament in a close game to IPFW, 66-62. It came down to the wire and in the last minute we had the chance to win and just couldn't convert. As sad as it was that they lost, I couldn't help but be excited for Rick because he had an AWESOME game! He pulled down a career-best 12 rebounds and an SUU-best 5 assists, leading both teams in rebounds and assists for the night. He also had eight points and played 27 minutes. He had a great game and I am so proud of him. It is really weird to think that his Sophomore season is already over! Two down, two to go!

My brother, Elder Easton Pedersen, entered the MTC on January 23, 2007. He is preparing for a mission in the Texas Houston South Mission, spanish speaking. So far he is doing wonderful in the MTC and has been picking up the language a lot easier than we and he thought! He has still struggled a little bit with the spanish but from his letters he sounds like he is trying hard and receiving a lot of help from his Heavenly Father. We love Easton and are very proud of him. Good luck Elder!

The SUU basketball team finished their last game of the season last night beating IPFW in an emotion-filled overtime game. SUU started the season out with a rough start but by the second half of the season they were up to par and beating almost every team the second time around. They enter the Summit League Tournament on Sunday March 9 as the fifth place team. Their first round game is against IPFW so it should be an emotional game after Saturdays intense match up. If they beat IPFW they will play reigning champs, Oral Roberts, on Monday the 10th. Go T-Birds and good luck Rick!
