WNIT: Syracuse at Bowling Green

About two weeks ago after I covered my last high school basketball game I thought basketball season was over. But little to he hold the Bowling Green Falcons got a first round bye in the Womens National Invitational Tournament and would host Syracuse at home. This being one of very few tournaments held at Anderson Arena it turned out to be a very exciting game.

I shot the player introduction looking for one of the girls doing something different.

Then for the tip off I wanted to shoot a wide angle version and a tight version at the same time. So I got both my cameras ready, one in each had.

Here is a little video I put to together with about 10 still clips for a little movie.

Then I hurried to my position below the basket and got to work. The first half of the game was pretty boring so we will fast forward to the second half. Senior Niki McCoy tried to catch a pass but it went right threw her hands. Oops..

Bowling Green was making a huge come back and Freddie the Falcon was going crazy.

Just after Bowling Green sealed the victory and was ready to celebrate Lauren Prochaska was on the ground because she hurt her knee. An awesome victory quickly wasn’t as import for the Bowling Green players. They were more concered with Lauren being ok then anything else.

She suffered a hyperextended knee and a bone bruise and will be listed day by day.
