Louisville had just advanced to the women’s Final Four, and the sisters Shoni and Jude Schimmel had helped cut the nets in celebration, a rare achievement for American Indian athletes. But it was not the biggest family news of the day.

As the sisters left the court Tuesday night, their father beamed and their mother waved and flashed her wedding ring. After 25 years of companionship and eight children, Ceci Moses and Rick Schimmel had been officially married, inspired in part by Louisville’s epic run through the NCAA tournament, a mother’s deferred dream realized and an accomplishment by her daughters that was as much a cultural triumph as an athletic success.

This article made it sound like the mother was hard up and chasing the father so that after 25 years, he'd make an honest woman out of her. I'd say she didn't have to be officially married to realize her dreams. What romanticizing!

No wonder the Louisville paper didn't carry that.
