Jingle Balls: Holiday cheer for ACU hoops

ACU v K-State WBB 600x400 96
Senior guard Whitney West Swinford
’Twas the month before Christmas
And all through the nation
Wildcats were stirring
In hoops celebration
Boone is the radio-TV voice of the Wildcats
Boone is the radio-TV voice of the Wildcats
The uniforms hung
By the lockers with care
In hopes that more victories
Soon would be there
With Lance keeping stats
And I on the mic
Ready to relay
A score fans would like  
The players were taking
Their spots on the court
Opposing them?
Some of the best in the sport

The women’s team beep-beeped
Right past the Roadrunners
Then clobbered two more foes
With its three-point gunners
A close loss in Lubbock
Was quickly erased
By beating both teams
In the Rockies they faced
And in the Northwest
With the ‘Cats on a roll
Two wins from the Eagles
And Vandals they stole

Whit, Syd and ‘Lexis
And both of the Dimbas
Have made this a most
Holly-jolly Decemb-a
The men’s team is bigger
And younger and stronger
Than previous years and
The road trips are longer
Out west, then the mountains
And Gulf went these battlers
Who feasted on day-after-
Thanksgiving Rattlers
The Big Ten, the Big 12
They took on each comer
Right down to the wire!
And fell short – a bummer
Freshman guard Jaylen Franklin

But rookies like J-Frank
And Jaren and Jovan
Along with the rest
Are a team fans can love on
Julie’s and Joe’s squads
Now fold up their maps
And settle down quickly
For short, winter naps
With conference upcoming
We say with good reason
Go Wildcats! Go Wildcats!
To us a great season!
Follow the Wildcats all season here!
