December 10th: Lots to Catch Up On!!

Lots of stuff going on lately: Christmas is only two weeks away, basketball is in full swing, and Sam is in the midst of getting grades turned in for finals week!! I'm also really excited to announce that we'll be getting a new iMac!! Our photo processing time should be reduced dramatically, I can't tell you how much time we spend just waiting on our trusty (and old) MacBook Pro.

Anyways, on to the good stuff:

November 30th, we went downtown to see the Lady Bucs take on the College of Charleston, where they won, 64-45. I have to say, the lighting was fantastic for photography, which really made it a blast!

Then, on the December 1st, we headed back to the Buc Dome to see the men take on Radford, where they came out on top, 83-78.

Saah Nimley leads the way with a career high night of 22 points to beat Radford 83-78. December 1, 2011

After that, we had a couple days off from shooting until the Lady Bucs made the trip up to Clemson. The game time was moved up on short-notice to noon to allow for Clemson to celebrate their ACC Football Title from the previous night, so it was an interesting atmosphere on campus. Sam, unfortunately, couldn't make the trip with me, so I had to shoot solo. The women really pushed through to pull off the 82-77 upset.

Lakeith Alston (above two photos), by the way, dominated in this game, earning her the Big South Conference's Women's Basketball Player of the Week.

In a last bit of exciting news, my photos found their way to into the following stories:
CSU Sports: Alston's Double-Double Helps Bucs Stun Tigers (the same photo was originally on the Big South's website for the same story, but when I just now went to get the link, the photo had been changed)
Women's Basketball Players of the Week Announced
Florida State Snaps CSU's Five Game Winning Streak (although, as we did not travel to Florida, the photo is from the Radford game)
Buccaneer's Balance Key Against Keydets (unfortunately, we missed this game as well, so this, again, is from the Radford game)
