Lone Star Conference Basketball Tournament
NCAA Division II post season basketball is one of my favorite things to cover. This was my fifth conference tournament in a row to shoot for the Lone Star Conference.
This year's tournament was held in Allen, Texas at the new Allen Event Center. The basketball court and goals were purchased from the NBA as this was the court used at the NBA All Star Game at Cowboys Stadium recently. I wonder if they found the court for sale on craigslist?
Beautiful facility, accommodating staff members, front row parking pass and clean backgrounds turned covering 14 games in five days a dream gig.
While shooting I never tried to stay in the same spot more than 10 minutes. I always moved around to show the reader what they can't see for themselves. As photographers our job is to show people what they can't see for themselves. My mentor John Davidson taught me that 10 years ago and it has always stuck with me.
