Coach Sue took to a different location today. She was on the radio this morning promoting her campaign and took to the air at 8:30 a.m. with Preston Scott on Clear Channel 100.7 FM. Semrau talked about how much fun this campaign has been, the health of some key players, and what the NCAA Tournament means to her. Here is a rundown of what she had to say:
By Sue Semrau
"It is a great day to be a Seminole. We are having a great time visiting local restaurants around Tallahassee and meeting the people in this community. We visited Shane's on Monday and got to serve some BBQ. Yesterday we were at Moe's. Cierra served food behind the counter, while Kayli, Courtney and Lex all greeted people with a loud, "Welcome to Moe's". What fun we had. The best part was they surprised me with a birthday cake and balloons. It was my birthday yesterday so we got to celebrate it a few times. I mixed a practice in between the Moe's visit and a nice dinner with my coaching staff. We want to be sharp for the NCAA Tournament.
Speaking of the NCAA Tournament that is one of the reasons I am out in the community this week. Not only do I want to meet the community, but to let them know about the upcoming NCAA Tournament that we are hosting and playing in. Its March 20-22 at home in the Tucker Center and I am encouraging people to buy tickets and give us a HUGE home court advantage. Tallahassee hasn't hosted a postseason basketball event in over 6 years, so this is something special. We had #1 UConn come into town this year and saw the largest crowd ever come out. We want to see the same thing for the Tournament. We are excited to see who will be coming to town and we hope the fans will come out and support the Seminoles.
We got back to practice yesterday and several people have asked me about Jacinta Monroe and her health. She is doing well. She is receiving treatment on her ankle, but she will be back and ready to go for the NCAA Tournament.
The excitement is definitely building here in Tallahassee. The more places I go, people stop me and tell me how excited they are about the tournament coming to town and that they get to see our team play a few more times. That is the passion we want to see; not only for this tournament, but for the future. We have built this program up and we want to see the fans continue and support our team. We have worked very hard to get the word out and I think it is working. I will be at Chick Fil-A on Capital Circle Northeast tomorrow from 12-1 serving food, greeting the fans and just having fun. I hope to see everyone out there."
