2013 NIAA Northern Regional Championship Basketball… at Carson High

What a night for basketball!  Carson High is an amazing place for basketball.  I shoot there most often but you don’t really get a sense of the place until you get a packed house like Saturday night for the NIAA Northern Regional Championships… great fun!!

Scroll down for the boys… 🙂

The girls tipped off at 4:00 PM and the game was fast and furious… then Reno’s point guard, Gigi Hascheff put her mark on the game… 22 of Reno’s 65 points to be exact!

Reno’s 3rd/4th quarter 19-3 run sealed the deal….

When you’ve covered a team all season, you try to come up with something new, some new angle, something… I’ve been waiting all school year for this shot (starting with volleyball…)… I LOVE being at an sporting event and hearing our National Anthem, to me, it’s one of the very best moments in sports in America.  I’m sure it’s this way to other countries but this is a very special moment, particularly when I know we have friends on duty right now defending our Country so we can enjoy these games.  This one’s for you Chris Wolfe….130216_Carson_instaimage_Boys Basketball_AnthemLook, it’s a bird, it’s a plane… it’s Brady showing us some action! 🙂130216_Carson_instaimage_Boys Basketball_SupermanMy “behind the backboard” camera is at the east end (stage end…) of the gym… so I missed Carson’s big first half with the two remote cameras…

The second half Carson had to fight for every bucket… Alan here working inside… against two Hug defenders

(if you look by the scorers table you can see me in this first one…).130216_Hug_instaimage_Boys Basketball_DunkUnfortunatlely, the camera that was IN my hands is the one that is out of focus for one angle. The good and bad of single point auto focus with cameras these days… the camera focuses so quick that it grabbed the blue curtain for the first few shots in this series (in the Hug High gallery…)… the other two cameras I lock the focus, so I set it and it doesn’t change….130216_Hug_instaimage_Boys Basketball_Dunk2
