On Wednesday evening I was at Kings High School for some tournament basketball games. Oak Hills was taking on Mason followed by Lakota East against Harrison. Mason and Lakota East came out the winners of their respective games. Even though the scores might not reflect it, there was plenty of intense action by all the teams. Nobody was ready for their season to be over. Here are a few of my favorites from the games:
Some of the Oak Hills fans showing their school spirit.
Driving to the basketball and drawing the contact.
Ready to play defense.
Battles her teammates for the ball and gets and arm to the face.
Battling for the loose ball.
Splitting the defense and getting drawing a foul.
Maintaining her dribble even after slipping down to the floor.
Looking for a teammate.
Getting the steal and then some contact.
Rising over the defense for the shot.
Trying to steal the ball.
More rebound battles.
Diving for the ball and getting a hand in the face instead.
Lining up the shot.
