In March, I had the opportunity to go to Brooklyn to cover the Atlantic 10 tournament at the brand new Barclays Center. The University of Dayton got knocked out in the first round, but I stayed around through the championship and made pictures. The facility is amazing– the media work room, the media meals, the court, the architecture, etc. I’m really looking forward to going back in March 2014. After a busy semester, here is part 1 of 2:

Dayton snaps Murray State’s 16-game streak

Murray State University senior guard Isaiah Canaan (3) dunks after a fast break during a game against the University of Dayton at UD Arena, Dec. 22, 2012, in Dayton, Ohio. UD won 77-68.

The University of Dayton brought Murray State University’s 16-game road winning streak to a skidding halt, Dec. 22. The Racers came in as favorites considering its 75-58 win against UD last year and its advancement to the round of 32 in this past NCAA tournament. UD, coming off a one point loss to Illinois State four days earlier, played all out and surprised a lot of people with a 77-68 win. It was easily the most exciting game the Flyers have played at home thus far this season. The 12,500+ fans inside UD Arena were as loud as I’ve heard them in many games. It was electric!

Tech note: I set up a post remote with a D300s and a 17-35mm f/2.8 set to 17mm (thanks, Erik!) and got lucky a few times. I was also shooting with the Nikon D800e and some different glass for the game (thanks, Isaac!). Word to the wise: if you’re shooting the D800 for sports, make sure you have big CF/SD cards. Those ~37mb RAW files fill up cards very quickly, but the 36 gorgeous megapixels are a welcome change from the usual 12! Cropping heaven!

UD falls short against Illinois State 74-73

University of Dayton redshirt junior guard Vee Sanford (43) reacts to his team missing a last-second, game-winning shot during a game against Illinois State University at UD Arena, Dec. 19, 2012, in Dayton, Ohio. Illinois State won 74-73.

The Flyers were back at home taking on Illinois State University, on Wednesday, Dec. 19. UD faced a physical and quick Redbird team that had them down by two at halftime. The Flyers battled through the second half and had 29 seconds to make the game-winning shot. Despite two attempts in the last 10 seconds, they could not get a shot to fall. The Flyers are now 8-3 on the season.

Even worse than the loss at home was redshirt senior guard Kevin Dillard having to leave the game abruptly with about four minutes to go in the second half due to an apparent back problem. I was about five feet from him after he hobbled to the bench, and he sounded like he was in excruciating pain in his “whole back.” After a couple minutes of grimacing and cursing on the bench, he left the gym floor with team trainer Nate Seymour and did not return.
