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…. Reno 65 Manogue 45 No question, Morse Burley Gym at Carson High is an AMAZING place for a basketball game when the place is packed… the fans chanting, the parents even at one point standing up to the cheers of the student section, what an amazing atmosphere… unfortunately for the Senators, Saturday night was the Hug Hawks night. Carson jumped out to an early lead but the SIGNIFICANT grind the Hawks put on defensively at the end the Senators couldn’t hold on. What a run by the Senators to end the season…
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….Look, it’s a bird, it’s a plane… it’s Brady showing us some action! 🙂My “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…
In the category of “something different”… And then Sam Williams’ dunk in the first half… Three angles! (if you look by the scorers table you can see me in this first one…).Unfortunatlely, 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….
See you out at the courts next year! Thanks for an exciting season!
