Tony Fiegen and Chad White grew up just down the road from the Lakes Bar and Grill. And that's where dozens of SDSU fans cheered for the hometown boys, performing on a national level.
Hope was high. Everyone sporting their blue and gold could feel an upset brewing.
“Hopefully they'll have really good luck tonight. We'll see,” said Eileen Halverson.
“I think we're going to pull it off. I do think they have a lot of heart and I think they're going to pull it off,” said Lisa Hanson.
And when the neighborhood kids from Madison are playing a big 10 team on prime time TV, it's more than just rooting for SDSU.
“A lot of enthusiasm in the community with the local players playing in the game tonight,” said Hanson.
While there were highs early in the game, the four seeded wolverines got the best of the jackrabbits.
And for the second straight year the jacks fall in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
For Tony Fiegen his basketball days have come to an end for SDSU. But, Madison natives will have another year to support Chad White.
