Low Angle

Tuesday took me to Raleigh to photograph No. 1 South Carolina vs. No. 5 NC State at Reynolds Coliseum.

Came away with a nice one of both teams locked on to a loose ball under the basket.

From left, NC State's Madison Hayes (21), South Carolina's Aliyah Boston (4), and NC State's Jakia Brown-Turner (11) chase down a loose ball at Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh Tuesday night.

APSE Award

Excited to find out today I won in the Sports Feature category of the Associated Press Sports Editors Annual Photo Contest. 

Sports Editors at print and online new sites from around the country submit their favorite images from the previous year to the contest. 

A feature image captures a moment that happens away from the action on the field.
