Ever since Kevin Dyson fell 1-yard short against the St. Louis Rams in SuperBowl XXXIV, Ishmael has dedicated his life to forever being disappointed by his favorite sports teams. He grew up in Manor, Texas and in high school exchanged his football helmet for a trumpet. His love for sports eventually crept back into his life in college at Texas State where he shifted paths and majored in Journalism and Mass Communication. Spending one day in a business calculus class helped expedite that process. Ishmael joined Dave Campbell’s as Managing Editor of Texas Basketball and Texas Coach after a three-year stint at the San Marcos Daily Record covering Texas State. He’s also a contributing writer to TexasFootball.com.

When he’s not stressing over the Bobcats on Saturdays or watching Arsenal and the Tennessee Titans lose on Sundays, you can find Ishmael drowning his sorrows in re-runs of Twin Peaks on Netflix or at a concert of his liking that he probably overpaid to attend.

To many, Friday’s opening Final Four semifinal against LSU and Virginia Tech was a burdensome appetizer to the main course of Iowa and South Carolina where Naismith Player of the Year Caitlin Clark was set to take on the reigning national champions. But neither were crowned champion on Sunday. That honor went to LSU after a 102-85 statement win over Iowa and one player's homecoming.
