    My daughter's big basketball game!

    I've got to do a little bragging on my daughter (High School Sophmore). She got her first triple double the other night. I had to post something about it - 31 points, 10 rebounds, 10 steals. To top it off, her team was down by 1 point with 5 seconds to go, and she sunk a layup, got fouled, and made the extra point. The other team didn't score again. She was pumped for two reasons. First... she spent most of the preceeding week with her foot in ice for 20 minutes at a time (every hour) after a bad sprain a week earlier. Second... this team beat them in their first meeting earlier this year, and its a rival team.

    The shots aren't the best I've managed to get, but they are from the big game! For those of you guys that scored high on the geek test (see the other thread), here are the technical details of the shots. All taken with a Nikon D2H, shot in aperature priority, f/2, 1/200-1/500 sec., ISO1600, with a 50mm f/1.4 lens. Autofocus in continuous servo with focus priority. No flash was used. White balance set manually with a grey card. Lighting in this gym is sporadic and dim, pretty bad conditions.

    Her big sister also had a great game (soccer is her real love, so she's just happy to be in the game on basketball) and
    had 7 rebounds and 4 steals. She was pumped because she played almost the entire game, while she usually spends a lot of the game watching little sis from the bench (who's bigger than her).

    This was using an 85mm f/1.8 lens... all else the same.

    That I am!

    Last night she had an off game, and here team mate sunk five 3 pointers to carry them to a 1 point, last seconds, victory. Exciting times as a parent to watch and cheer.
