The emotional Middle Tennessee senior didn't expect to see his older brother on Saturday
Senior night is always an emotional celebration for players stepping onto their home court to play their last game in front of the fans. However, Saturdayâs festivities were extra emotional for Middle Tennesseeâs Reggie Upshaw. Not only did he celebrate his final home game at MTSU, but he was surprised by his brother, Gage, a cadet in the Air Force Academy.
They shared an emotional moment during the senior night ceremony.
Gage attends the Air Force Academy in Colorado, and the two had not seen each other since Christmas, according to WKRN.
Middle Tennessee (27-4) wrapped up the outright Conference USA title on Saturday in a 93-59 win over Florida Atlantic, and secured the 1 seed in the conference tournament which starts on Wednesday. Upshaw finished with 11 points and 10 rebounds
