BLOGGIN' IN THE PAINT: NU's Charron Fisher talks pasta dinners, preparing for the week ahead

Niagara senior Charron Fisher is blogging for Greater Niagara Newspapers this season. Don't miss his reports all season long.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Charron again, fresh back from our first road trip of the season against Duquesne. It has been a good couple of days off of school for the Thanksgiving holiday, which my team and I spent at Coach Mihalich’s house where his wife cooked us a great meal. Friday morning though, it was back to practice and then right after that, we loaded the bus and headed down Duquesne, in Pittsburgh. This is what we typically do the day before a road game, another one of our traditions. The bus ride was pretty good, mostly because it was only a few hours long. We watched some game film and then got to sleep until we reached our destination. We got there around 8 o’clock and went to a very good pasta place for a late dinner as a team. Once we got into our hotel, we checked in and then had a little meeting to go over some more game tape and scouting reports. After that we all headed to bed.

Saturday we woke up around 10 and had breakfast and another meeting before heading back to our rooms to get ready for the game. One thing that I always do is iron my uniform and warm up my upper body before every game. Once we were all ready we headed over to the Palumbo Center for shoot around and warm up.

As you may know we lost our first game of the season, 76-65. The guys played really hard, but we could not pull ahead at the end of the game to a very good team. I am proud of the way our young guys handled themselves on the road. We learned a lot about our team from this game and we have a lot to build on now. I don’t think that I played my best, but now I know things that I can improve on to better help my team win.
