#BBALLMOMFAN - I completely agree. Son is 9 hours away.. and redshirt freshman. We still went to opening weekend. Now it does mean I will probably adjust the number of weekends we visit because he isn't playing but it's about showing your child that the things that matter to him or even her for that matter, are also important to you. And being that far away, they may not always say it but they are just as happy to see you as you are to see them!
