PAUL, Minn. -- Thomas Shephard is a senior for- ward for the University ofNorthwestem - St. Paul Men's Basketball team. In his fourth season playing under head coach Tim Grosz, Shephard had been apart of back-to-back Upper Midwest Athletic Conference (UMAC) regular sea- son titles. Northwestern has won four consecutive UMAC tournament tires including the three since Shephard's freshman season. Embarking on the end of regular season play, the North- western Eagles needed just two conference wins to claim its third straight UMAC regular season rifle. For Shephard, it would mean three of his four seasons were those in which his team won the conference. On Friday, Feb. 13, Shephard and Northwestern hosted Northland College in a conference matchup. Northwestern hosted another guest, one who is a close personal friend of Shephard. The noteworthy guest was Brandon Kartes. Brandon is from Edinburg, N.D., where he met Shephard. The two became great friends in high school, where they sang choir together. Brandon studies at Lake Region State College in Devils Lake, N.D. Brandon does not often get to visit his friend because of the distance between his school and Northwestern in St. Paul. When Brandon does make the trip to Northwestern, he doesn't miss a moment. Brandon is visually impaired, but he records just about every minute of his life. Last year, Brandon visited Shep- hard and met his teammates, coaches, and friends. Bran- don carried an electronic recorder in his pocket and recorded every second of his day with Thomas Shephard. Brandon refers to his recordings as his way to relive to his favorite memories. When he travels to the Twin Cities to see Shephard, he attends Northwestern Basketball games. Although Brandon cannot see his friend in action on the Photo: Submitted Above: Thomas Shephard and Brandon Kades court, he listens to the live stream of the game. [Having broadcasted multiple games, I attest listening to game is just as, if not more, exciting.] During Brandon's visit, on Friday Feb. 13, he sang the National Anthem prior to the contest. He later joined the halftime show on the North- western Basketball Broadcast stream to chat about his per- sonal relationship with Shephard, and the joy it brings him to visit Northwestern. In the interview, Brandon expressed his displeasure in the recent game he saw Shephard play, one in which the Eagles lost. UNW changed the experience for Brandon and let him witness a win at home as the Ea- gles beat Northland College by ten points. With Brandon cheering in the bleachers, Shephard scored four points with four rebounds and two assists. The experience didn't end after Friday's game; Northwestern needed to win its next game to claim the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference for the 26th time in school history. Saturday afternoon Brandon sat in the stands behind the Eagles bench; headphones in both ears, listening to a thrilling game between St. Scholastica and UNW. The Ea- gles trailed the Saints by seven at the half, but Northwest- ern turned the tide and came back to beat St. Scholastica 73-65. In the victory, Shephard pulled down team-high seven rebounds. The victory ensured Northwestern as UMAC regular season champions. Shephard and Brandon hoisted the UMAC trophy in celebratory fashion follow- ing the conference title win. Editor's Note: "National Anthem Performer, North- western Basketball Support, Life Inspiration" was reprinted from University of Northwestern student Tyler Cate's blog "'The Morning Combine" with Cate's permis- sion.
