Meg Fraschilla's shirt has two buttons on it. On one button, Oklahoma's James Fraschilla. On the other, Harvard's Matt Fraschilla. Brothers, three years apart, both in Spokane, playing on separate teams in the NCAA tournament.
"This was the tradition our from high school and my kids are mortified that I've carried it through college," Mother, Meg Fraschilla said about the buttons. ?But it's fun for us and we are the parents and grandparents, so we get to do what we want to do."
Out of eight venues, Harvard and Oklahoma University both ended up in Spokane for the second round, which was exciting news for the Fraschilla family.
"The boys started texting each other, which was really cute as a mother to watch them to bond over it," Meg Fraschilla said. "We just started scrambling for flights."
Meg Fraschilla and, grandmother, Julie Ann O'Connell made the trip to the Inland Northwest from Dallas, Texas. For O'Connell it's a grandmother's dream come true.
"They've always done everything as a pair," O'Connell said. "Growing up they were very very close, so it's been fun to see them."
