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.

It was an honor to photograph you sir. Best of luck in China. #Repost @obagoal ・・・ Thank you Seattle. Thank you for everything. Thank you for the memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you for the endless love and support, during good times and bad. Thank you to my teammates and coaches for always believing in me. Something I feel strongly about is challenging myself. When I came to Seattle, it was for the challenge. The challenge of playing in an unknown environment. I can wholeheartedly say that I seized the opportunity in Seattle and gave everything I had for the club. For me it's now time for a new challenge. After significant reflection, I have decided to join Shanghai Greenland Shenhua FC of the CSL. When I left Nigeria for Italy at age fifteen with the hopes of a pro career, I put everything on the line. I was immersed in an unknown culture. It may be difficult to understand or relate to, but I've grown to appreciate the feeling I get when entering environments where I’m not a proven footballer. Rave on, Oba Martins
