Washington vs California NCAA Mens Basketball

As some of you may have known, I am not doing much for sports photography anymore. I backed off a bit to focus on my commercial photography and video work. That being said, I have always made myself available for the occasional sports assignment if my work is needed. One of those assignments was this past Thursday night while covering the UW vs CAL mens basketball game for USA Today Sports Images. Below are a few my favorite select photos.
