Last night, I was supposed to shoot girls basketball. I arrived early — and saw wrestlers on a wrestling mat.
Turns out they rescheduled the girls basketball game to tonight, and the paper hadn’t been notified. I called the reporter, he called the sports editor and soon we were rushing over to a boys basketball game going on a few miles away.
I’ll say it now: I had a pretty rough off-night. This was not one of my best games. In fact, this was probably my worst game. This happens to every photographer, though, so I’m not concerned about being in a rut or out of shape. That said, here’s the shot that ran:

First: layers. Oh my goodness, layers.
Yep. Pretty rough off-night. John, who shot the night’s other game, said he had an off-night, too. There must’ve been something in the water.
