This is a continuation from Part I, which can be seen here. I shot nine games over four days. It was difficult sitting cross-legged for so many hours, but it was worth it. It’s not everyday that I get to shoot in such a well-lit arena. This was a great warm up for the NCAA tournament games coming to UD Arena just a few days after this tourney ended. I’ll be posting my favorite frames from the tourney in an upcoming post.

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.
