Idaho State Girls Basketball Tournament (Day 1)

This week I am covering the Girls Idaho State Basketball Tournament for   Photographing the State Tournament requires a lot of hours.  The drive to Boise from Northern Idaho requires a lot of hours behind the wheel, photographing at least 4 games a day requires a lot of time behind the lens and then after the games are finished the editing requires many late night and early morning hours in front of the computer.  State takes a large investment of time but the quality of play combined with the drama and emotion of the tournament is a recipe for a very fun and exciting three days of basketball.  Here are a few highlights from the games I covered on day 1.

Coeur d’Alene vs. Post Falls 01/13/2012

A couple of great games were on tap as some of Idaho’s best basketball teams faced off last Friday night.  The Post Falls Trojans traveled to Coeur d’Alene High school to take on the Vikings.  The games did not disappoint, especially the boys game that ended up in overtime with the game winning shot coming at the buzzer.  Here are a few shots from the night as well as links to the galleries to see all the photos.

12/16/2011 Moose Madness

This year the annual Moose Madness Basketball Spirit Games between Sandpoint and Bonners Ferry were held in Sandpoint.  Bonners Ferry came in seeking to defend as champion, but this year Sandpoint pulled out a win.  One thing I learned at this game was that I need to add ear plugs to my photography bag for next year’s competition!  Here are some photos from the different portions of the evening, a link to all the galleries from this event can be found at the bottom of this post.
