Double Hoops

It was a day of basketball in the Bryce Jordan Center as Penn State starts up their seasons.  I’m getting back into the speed of basketball, and gaining strength back from my summer surgery to be able to hold a camera vertically for extended amounts of time.  It seems like a simple thing, but I quickly felt the difference.  LadyLions02 LadyLions04 LadyLions05 LadyLions07 PSUhoops02 PSUhoops04 PSUhoops06

Lady Lions Pink Zone

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.
