While Andre and Arielle Roberson spend this week preparing their teams for the NCAA Tournament, their parents are preparing in their own way.
Andre and the Colorado men's team will play Friday (and possibly Sunday) in Austin, Texas, just a short, 45-minute drive from the Roberson's San Antonio home. Arielle and the CU women's team will play Saturday (and possibly Monday) in Boulder.
That sets up what could be a whirlwind weekend for their parents, John and Lisa.
"I can't complain one bit about it," Lisa said. "It's stressful, but it's a good stress."
In preparation for what could be an expensive weekend, John said he is having Roberson T-shirts made to sell to family and friends that will attend the games.
"I'm doing a little fundraiser to offset the price a little bit," John said.
The Robersons are used to this type of schedule. Their older daughters, Amber and Ashlee, were both in athletics and mom and dad sometimes had to make decisions on which games to attend. That was a bit easier, though, because Amber was a volleyball player and Ashlee a basketball player, so their games didn't overlap much.
"When Andre and Arielle came along, we had a little competition going on," John said.
Arielle has lost this battle before. During her senior year of high school, she had a regional finals game at the same time Andre, who was a freshman at CU, had a big game against Texas in Boulder.
"We had already made plans to go to the Texas game, so she was rather upset by that," John said.
Last week, John and Lisa made the trip to Las Vegas to watch Andre in the Pac-12 Tournament, but didn't go to Seattle a week earlier to watch Arielle in the women's tournament.
"She's chalking them up; you can believe that," John joked.
Shortly after the women's NCAA bracket was revealed on Monday, Arielle called home.
"I was trying to argue my case," Arielle said with a smile.
At least for the first round, Andre and Arielle don't have to worry.
John and Lisa said their plan is to attend the CU men's game in Austin on Friday and then catch a plane and get to Boulder in time for the women's game on Saturday. Amber and Ashlee will be in Boulder for the weekend, John said.
"I know my dad is very anxious," Andre said. "I know he's also trying to get up here to see my sister the next day to take on Kansas. That's pretty cool."
The thought of her parents traveling around to watch the games made Arielle laugh a bit.
"It's very ironic," Arielle said. "This is how it always used to be in high school, with not just me and Andre, but with my older sisters and everybody having to battle. It's definitely fun and it's funny to be in (this situation), because it's happening all over again."
For now, John and Lisa have Friday and Saturday figured out. But, what if both teams win their first-round games?
"We don't plan because if we plan, things don't go the way we plan them," John said. "We're going to take it one game at a time and see how things happen."
