I was at that game, too. My first ever solo road trip. I had graduated in spring of '94 but still lived in Champaign. I had gone to the Illinois Mercer basketball game a few nights before when they announced that tickets were still available. So I loaded up the trusty 1974 Buick Regal, left around midnight, drove down, watched the game, and drove all the way back up in one caffeine-fueled day.
Totally worth it.
