Arizona basketball: Military family surprised for holidays at McKale Center

The Arizona basketball team beat Southern on Thursday, but the highlight of the game happened during a commercial break.

Jon Gold of the Arizona Daily Star has a great story on the family that on Thursday was reunited.

They show a video from Christopher on the big screen, and the crowd stands and cheers, and Tanya is in tears, which may ruin the Arizona decal she has on her cheek. The announcer says they have a surprise, and Tanya is excited for her children, thinking the kids are getting some nice gifts.

They all are.

In walks Christopher from behind, and the arena roars.
