Yesterday’s Lady Lions game was a very busy one. It was the team’s annual Pink Zone game which continues to drastically grow each year, in addition to senior day, and then they clenched a second straight Big Ten title. I usually shoot around 400-500 frames at a Penn State basketball game, after this game I had 1100 frames, which is around what I shoot for a football game. I was shocked with how much I photographed but with all the activities and the photos needed for news and sports I sorted through my favorites.
The first half of the game was quick, with the Lady Lions dominating the court.
Half time was a celebration of life for those who have battled breast cancer with a mid court concert and recognition.
Michigan came back fighting in the second half to close the gap in the points, but it wasn’t enough to stop the Lady Lions.
As the clock ran out and the scoreboard read 68-57 streamers started to fly into the air as the team celebrated.
With the last Penn State football game over the weekend it’s now time for winter sports. I covered one of the men’s exhibition games a few weeks ago, but now the season is in full swing. Last night’s late match up against Boston College was part of the ESPN’s ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
Since the game didn’t start till after 9, I was only able to photograph the first half to meet deadline.
After I transmitted photos I started to wonder around the Bryce Jordan Center to look at some different angles to get more variety from my basketball shoots. For a future game I’d like to take in a longer lens and try this angle from the stands.
